Itata Valley, South Region

Franschhoek Cellar

The Huguenot Chenin Blanc 2022

Sa chenin.
Feels a bit of a product.

Some tropics, 🍑, 🍏 grapefruit and some vanilla.

Full body.
Medium + acidity.

Long 🎯 with a backbone of bitterness

Really Improved pasta with NYT 'all purpose green sauce' and gauda with truffles cheese grated on top.

All in all nice in the evening.
Not so good the next day.

Porcupine Ridge Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Love the lemongrass taste from this Sauvignon Blanc, perfect with a crisp and zesty finish. — 3 months ago

Tinto de Rulo

Pipeño País 2021

The funk is too distracting though it quiets down on day two. Light red fruits, modest frame; plenty of earth & decent minerality. Lifesaver Ruby red. Could see this pairing well with mushroom oriented fare. — 6 months ago

Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Chardonnay 2016

Very vintage golden glinted green, like brass that needs a polish.

Sits here nicely in the last of its best years.

Equal parts vanilla spiced whiskey and fleshy super sweet tropical fruits. Grilled pineapple, starfruit, banana, and orange liqueur.
