Slowine Chenin Blanc 2017

Description
This full mouth feel wine is the right companion for fresh salads drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. Gooseberries and granny smith apple is of abundance to this wine.

 

Vinification
The grapes from one of our four climate areas, Bossieveld, were harvested at the optimum ripeness. Only free run juice was used. After settling it was inoculated with a selected yeast. The fermentation was colder than usual to capture up-front fruit flavours. The selected tank was bottled early to enjoy as fresh as possible.

 

Tasting Notes
Beautiful aromas of guava and fresh tropical fruit tantalize the nose and follow through to a balanced mouthful that’s subtle and refreshing.

 

Food pairing
Serve with a blue cheese or chicken salad. A good option is fish of any kind as is grilled chicken, cheese soufflé, seafood pasta and even gammon.
