Cederberg Chenin Blanc 2013

The Cederberg style Chenin Blanc offers beautiful layers of melon, grapefruit and fleshy white pear. Five months lees contact ensured a mouth coating creaminess on the palate with a lively crisp acidity to finish off. Altitude vineyards make this Chenin Blanc unique, a one of a kind wine.

This wine will be well suited to creamy dishes and light summer lunches.
