Chenin Blanc Carpe Diem, Diemersfontein, Paarl 2016 75cl

This is a classic Chenin Blanc from South Africa. The Diemersfontein Estate is set within a spectacular mountain range less than an hour from Cape Town and is famous for its annual pinotage festival. This Chenin is harvested from three different terroirs; about a third of the wine is matured in oak to add richness to the natural freshness of the grapes. Aromas of citrus fruit, pineapples, green apples and pears with warm toasty biscuit flavours. Rich and oily, with lots of honey and vanilla on the palate; good balance and a smooth finish. Works well with fish in sauces, chicken and turkey.

Chenin Blanc

Citrussy white wine from fertile valley floors in California and South Africa on the one hand while on the other, Chenin Blanc can be a honeyed elixir in varying degrees of sweetness from small village appellations in the Loire Valley. This is the traditional home of Chenin Blanc, where the mists rising from the Loire in the mornings envelop the vines and induce the onset of the mould Botrytis (noble rot) whose own characters meld with Chenin‘s acacia-and-straw flavours to create wines with complex flavours, bright acidity and outstanding capacity to age. Chenin can range from dry and intensely mineral in appellations like Anjou and Savennières, to lusciously sweet and honeyed.
