Wild Garden Chenin Blanc

Wild Garden Chenin Blanc was created to offer a superb value for money white wine that is a delicious medium dry version of this grape variety. The acidity is low and the flavours play with your senses making you think it's sweet when it's actually really fruity.

Produced in the Wild Garden that is the Western Cape of South Africa, these wines typify the classic South African grape varieties. Carefully selected, blended and bottled for us, the Pinotage is South Africa's signature grape variety with an easy drinking fruity style, while the Chenin Blanc with its fresh fruity flavours is very quaffable indeed.

Vintage

South Africa's 2015 vintage looks set to be one of the best in recent years. The early growing season, with low rainfall in many areas and strong diurnal temperature differences have helped producers to achieve well balanced ripeness.

Winemaking

The grapes were not crushed but were left in contact with skins for 6 hours at 6°C. Following this, crushing took place and fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks at 16C until dry. Malolactic fermentation did not take place.

Tasting Note

Crisp and fresh in style with medium dry/sweet fruit characteristics. Wild Garden Chenin is a delightful wine to drink on its own
