Chardonnay Chenin Blanc (Rawsonville, South Africa)
South Africa, LE2017, JAN 2018
AVAILABLE JANUARY 2018
Coming out in January is our first white blend wine. Very popular among wine enthusiasts everywhere, Chardonnay is without a doubt a big name in wine. This South African blend adds Chenin Blanc, a lesser know varietal for added complexity and acidity. Our Chenin Blanc grapes are from the Rawsonville region, a small picturesque wine region and farming community on the eastern flanks of the Du Toitskloof Mountains. The Mediterranean climate brings cool rainy winters and warm dry summers to the vineyards creating a fruit forward white wine and a high but pleasant amount of acidity.
Tropical fruit aromas marry with baked apple citrus zest and juicy peach in this wine. Chardonnay's characteristic buttery complexity is complimented wonderfully by Chenin Blancs tart acidity to create a well balanced wine. Perfect on its own, this wine also pairs well with a variety of foods. Seafood dishes such as grilled salmon, lobster, or crab will we complimented nicely or even try it with your favorite chicken recipe.
