 Swartland - South Africa

 Dry White

 Chenin Blanc

"This uses the grapes from the same vineyard as those from the Cortez Chenin Blanc, which was planted in 1972. The only difference between these two wines is that this spends about 10 days on skins. It is because of this that the nose is particularly concentrated with fresh apple, white nectarine, mango and peach. Baking spices are alluded on the palate with a nice texture to the wine, yet as you swirl around your palate you begin to appreciate the acidity more and more. A very well made wine."

Dry Whites are very versatile and are best suited to foods that are higher in acidity (vinaigrettes etc.) or in fat – the natural acidity in the wines will cut through the foods.

They are perfect accompanied by:

Fresh and Roasted Vegetables

Starch-rich foods

Fish and Shellfish
