Under Oaks Chenin Blanc 2017

The Under Oaks Chenin Blanc 2016 is a bright and shiny wine, with has a pale straw-yellow colour. The wine is well balanced, full flavoured and displays strong notes of guava and tropical fruit salad on the nose and palate. It has a good acidity and a long fruity aftertaste.  Although it is very full-bodied this Chenin Blanc is soft on the palate and a pleasure to drink.

The Under Oaks Chenin Blanc is simply delicious on its own on a nice warm summer afternoon or it can be perfectly partnered with garden salads or grilled fish.  One of our favourites is braai’d chicken with an apricot glaze paired to perfection with a big glass of chilled Under Oaks Chenin Blanc.
