Cederberg Chenin Blanc 2010

This crisp, reductively made Chenin Blanc is in true Cederberg Style, showing a powerful nose of tropical melon, grapefruit and lemon peel. Five months of lees contact created a mouth tingling crispness with a lingering finish. Superb food compatibility. Definitely one of the most successful Cape Chenins of the last decade.
