In a nutshell:
A rich, rounded and judiciously oaked South African Chenin Blanc
The vineyards for this wine are on the cool southerly sloping gravelly foothills of the Helderberg mountains which are ideal for making this style of Chenin Blanc. Owner and winemaker Nick Gebers says of his wines that they are among the darkest you'll find which is down to his hands off approach in the winery which is to interfere as little as possible in the natural winemaking processes. The result is a weighty and viscous wine with intense flavours of stone and tropical fruits, ripe orange, touches of sweet spice, and a long, honeyed finish. And it maintains a good acidity giving the wine precision and a satisfyingly clean finish.
When to drink:
Drinking well now it'll also mature for a couple of years further allowing a further honeyed character to emerge. Seafood like scallops or lobster work well as does chicken or pork especially in rich creamy sauces.
