Botanica Citrusdal Mountain Chenin Blanc 2012

9.11 rating on Delectable
$23.99

A beautifully balanced expression of the grape. With 50% of the wine fermented in stainless steel & the other half fermented in 4th fill 400 liter French oak, it is neither too weighty nor too lean. The crystal-clean light gold wine echoes all the flavors of that hue, from juicy yellow pears to warm chamomile.

This is the best South African wine I've had. (Out of maybe 10 in my 18 yrs as a wine lover.) Very enjoyable. The alcohol is excessive on the nose but not in the mouth.

South Africa is home to some of the world's oldest Chenin vines, where it is commonly known by its moniker 'steen.' Made from 50+ year old bush vines, this is a bright, lean expression full of überfresh citrus, passionfruit and green herb notes. #cheninigans #oldvines
