Part two of my S African samples of Chenin tasting. Damn. They all have this herb-mineral-underlying-current-of-serious that underlies a tropical nature. I donโ€™t get the honey of the Loire which is good as the acid is lower but I do get...a complexity Iโ€™ve yet to wrap my brain around but am happy to keep trying.

Nice body with some viscosity. Green olive briny notes. Really interesting version of Chenin from South Africa

Just terrific Chenin. Excellent price point and this wine gives you a lot back. Has that great lanolin, wool and oily flavors like Loire. Great body and mouthfeel. Some earthy notes, not as much as old world. But still lovely.

Learning about the baboons that roam around Badenhorst vineyard was just as enjoyable as drinking the wine itself. Love this chenin.
