Chenin Blanc
White Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : Light and fresh, with honeysuckle and white peach notes. Clean finish. Drink now.

Robert Parker Notes : The 2015 Free Run Steen Chenin Blanc has an attractive nose with fresh grapefruit and passion fruit scents that are well defined and articulate the variety with clarity. The palate is well balanced with crisp grapefruit and light honeyed tones, very harmonious with well judged acidity and a composed, quite elegant finish. This is an excellent Chenin Blanc.

Tasting Notes : A crisp, expressive, medium-bodied wine. Light yellow/straw in appearance. Vibrant aromas of quince & tropical fruit. On the palate, fresh stone fruit and apple flavours are backed by refreshing acidity and minerality. A versatile food wine with poultry, shellfish and vegetable dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon. Great to drink now, but ages beautifully over 2-5 years. Serve chilled. Steen is the South African term for Chenin Blanc. Chenin Blanc thrives in the Mediterranean climate, deep soils and bush-vine vineyards of this region. The winemakers uses only the free-run juice (no pressing of the grapes) to preserve its clean and natural character, refreshing acidity and delicious ripe fruit flavours.
