Springfontein Terroir Selection Chenin Blanc 2010

A bright green tint with a hint of yellow undertones. The medley of tropical flavours are well supported by the integrated oak and more specifically some nutty and roasted almond flavours. The palate tells you that this wine is non- pretentious with the same flavours, experienced on the nose, being carried through on the palate.

Enjoy on its own or with salads, chicken or other light dishes.
