TASTING NOTE: From a great family of leading edge Cape wines, this is such a great value in sturdy, ripe, rich and stony chenin blanc. The nose is classic with pear/quince, clover honey, gentle spice and waxiness. It is quite full bodied with firm, juicy acidity, a touch of sweetness and well moderated alcohol. The length is excellent with some salty minerality in the mix. Bring it on. Tasted October 2021. Score - 92 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, undated) Price $ 19.95
