  • Ken Forrester Petit Chenin Blanc : Perfect everyday drinking wine. A youthful fresh wine with quince and pear drop flavours. Earlier picked freshness shows on palate with crunchy green apple and grapefruit flavours. Good mouthfeel and appetisingly tangy finish.
  • Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc : Ripe quince, pineapple and stone fruit with some interesting savoury undertones. Lightly textured palate, with a hint of sweetness and balancing crunchy acid, results in a brisk finish.
  • Cederberg Chenin Blanc : 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 truly unique.
  • Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Chenin Blanc Bush Vines : Aromas of ripe pineapple and guava jump out of the glass. This is followed by a rich and ripe palate, beautifully balanced by lemon-lime freshness on the back palate. Flinty mineral notes that linger on the finish definitely mean that this delicious wine will mature gracefully over the next 3 to 5 years.
  • Stellenrust Chenin Blanc: This Chenin Blanc shows strong lime and some tropical fruit on the nose with a mineral palate of grape fruit and pear drop.
  • De Morgenzon DMZ Chenin Blanc : Green apple, apricot, peach, hints of honey and floral aromas characterize a fresh and upfront nose. The palate is rich and well integrated with a lingering aftertaste.
