Great value on this Chenin. Lemon, wax, and minerality all there. Great stuff.

Really interesting to try this with Kloof Street both from The W.O. Swartland - this was a little nicer than the Kloof Street - little more fruit melon honey spice

Some of the best damn Chenin on the market for the $. This vintage shows an intriguing tension between floral expression and herbal intensity.

This was my first introduction to SA Chenin, and it set the bar for most of the past year. I’d probably consider it my house wine for when you want to give white wine drinkers something to chew on. Great wine, great value!

Very enjoyable wine from South Africa. I get apple and honey in taste with a bit of minerality. Quite good.
