The Raconteur Bush Vine Chenin Blanc is hand-picked then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Natural yeast fermentation with no oak. Then finally left on its lees for six months to round out, adding a layer of complexity. The bush vines are 29-year-old goblet looking in shape producing high-quality bunches whilst being dry grown. Bush vines are are quite hard to manage, as they cant be machined harvested and tend be older generally. Chenin in South Africa has become one of the key grapes the country is known for.
This bush vine Chenin Blanc is pure, expressing peach and passion fruit with a lick of white pear. A crisp palate with a semi scented finish.
It’s a total smasher, perfect with lighter meals, pear and walnut salads, grilled fish, scallops or jerk chicken
