The Chenin Blanc is the newest addition to the Gabrielskloof Estate Range - together with our Sauvignon Blanc, Rosebud, The Blend and Syrah. This range offers a selection of boutique style wines that always over-deliver on quality and value.
The 2018 Chenin Blanc was naturally fermented in old barrels with minimal intervention. Expect luscious fruit on the nose - quince preserve with pear drops, lemon and fresh apple flavours. An elegant, well-balanced palate with medium weight and a delicious, refreshing tang makes this wine perfect for lighter style foods like a herby chicken salad.
Best enjoyed at 13’C. Drink in the next three years.
Angela Lloyd's Tasting note in Platter 2019:
"Gentle freshness, red apple tones fleshed out by 15% Semillon, harmonised in older, large oak. Spontaneous ferment. 86pts"
