This sublime bottling from Chenin master Bruwer Raats sets the standard for South African Chenin Blanc, consistently garnering 90+ Wine Spectator raves. A portion of the wine is fermented and aged in barrel, resulting in a rich, profound offering that strikes a perfect balance between elegance and power. Luscious flavors of honeyed pear, butterscotch, citrus, and ginger and delicate hints of mineral and spice carry through on the seemingly endless finish.
Very plump and enticing, with citrus peel, quince and golden apple notes followed by a round, fresh finish. Underlying minerality lends an elegant feel. Opens nicely in the glass. Drink now through 2009.
