Cederberg Chenin Blanc 2004

We like to call it a textbook Cape Chenin. Lots of powerful grapefruit/melon/citrus flavours and flashy tropical aromas on the nose flow into a rich, concentrated and well-balanced experience on the palate. The well-balanced gentle sweetness has an almost creamy texture that makes this wine a perfect partner for baked vegetable dishes and other vegetarian food. Try it for yourself, and you will see that there is just no question why this wine is consistently winning awards and is seen as one of the best Chenin performers in South Africa.
