More and more I will be getting out of my comfort zone. This is a single vineyard Chenin Blanc from South Africa, Stellenbosch. Hand-picked whole bunches, kept on the skins for 12 hours after harvest before gentle pressing. 12 month fermentation and maturation in 225L French oak barrels. The skin contact produces a beautiful medium gold color that's as shiny as a wedding band on a honeymoon. Indeed, honeysuckle is among the aromas that also include pear, peach, apricot, marmalade, and a twist of lime. Everything gets confirmed on the palate, with a touch of brioche. Medium plus bodied, dry (with a hint of residual sugar on the tongue), medium acidity. A great wine.

Smells of a cheese shedding in cave.
This wine has great heft, and i s not as ripened as some Pinotage I have had. This wine has a thick sugar free jaminess to it, stand up, not overbearing tannins. Little acidity, this has the harmony of well made wine. — 6 months ago
A unique blend of South African reds, including the pinotage hybrid. Diverse, just like the South African soil, or like a collection of random wildflowers pressed in a child’s book that will remain untouched for years only to be discovered when the parents move from the childhood home. — a year ago
March 17, 2021. Spontaneous tasting w/ C — South African reds, Bordeaux blends. Whoa! This full bodied powerhouse is 57% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% pinotage. Aromas of Cocoa, coffee, deep black fruit. Lots of old leather, cocoa on the palate. Unfiltered w/ lots of sediment, so not a good coravin candidate. Double decanted, then purchased the last 5 bottles available on Vivino. 15% alcohol so go slow. — 3 months ago
