Kaapzicht 1947 Chenin Blanc 2017 - SOLD OUT

4“It’s a hugely complex yet entirely drinkable affair. Lime, white peach, yellow apple, earth, some yeasty complexity. Weightless intensity and all of a piece. Oxidative in style but perfectly done – the resulting vague sherry-like quality suits the wine. “ Christian Eedes - www.whatidranklastnight.co.za
