Mooiplaas Chenin Blanc Bush Vine 2019
(R744.00 for 6 x 750ml)
Lovely pale straw colour, nose decidedly tropical with quince / golden delicious apples/ litchi / mango / and summer melon flavours, good weight and balance on the palate, layered with minerality on the palate. The wonderful mouthfeel that typifies ripe Chenin blanc has already started to develop and will increase in the next 12 - 24 months.. A well made complex wine with a balanced palate, good structure and long lingering finish.
Pair with fresh tomato soup, seafood bisque, grilled fish/seafood dishes, vegetarian pizza and pasta dishes, salads, roast or grilled chicken.
