This classy Chenin Blanc from KWV’s limited release ‘Mentors’ range has a deep golden colour, and intense aromas of apricots, honeysuckle, lime, nougat and macadamia nuts. The palate is textured and creamy, with full-flavours of pure apricot and ripe melon, backed with fresh citrus notes which give a vibrant finish. Enjoy now but can age 3-5+ years.
80% oak and 20% stainless steel tank fermented Chenin has produced a tightly wound wine with a wood and beeswax nose, followed by baked apple and lime backed up by a lovely cleansing acidity. The finish develops honey and stone fruit flavours.
Try with lobster and sautéed scallops with apple purée, Coronation chicken salad with apple, celery hearts and golden raisins or a Chinese stir fry that has gentle spice with bean curd, water chestnuts and beansprouts
