Deetlefs Chenin Blanc 2004

Veritas 2005 - Bronze
A soft, green appearance with an upfront subtropical bouquet of ripe peach - and fresh fruit flavours. A wine with zip and sparkle! Good crisp lime flavours and a long fine finish. A superb aperitif, yet enough character to accompany a variety of dishes.
