Riebeek Chenin Blanc Reserve 2005

Complex nose of upfront tropical fruit such as guava and whiffs of citrus, enhanced by good French cooperage. The pallet follows through with fruit and oak in perfect harmony for a lingering taste sensation.

Slightly chilled with rich white meat, creamy pasta dishes and mild curries.
