Spier Chenin Blanc Signature Collection 2019

Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaThis pleasing Cape chenin starts with a quiet nose showing apple, pear, quince and touch of peach. The volume changes considerably in the mouth with a surge of juicy fruit - lychee, melon, spiced pears, fuzzy peaches and a bite of grapefruit pith on the finish, and even a beautiful tail of minerality. Not quite dry, the succulent fruit is squeezed with fresh limey acidity balancing this colossal best value wine. I have long been a fan of Spier wines, a 300-year old Stellenbosch wine farm that's family-owned and dedicated to the local community. Keep the food as easy-going as this crisp white with a herby chicken burger, cold pasta salad, or savoury melon and feta salad.Tasted: 23 June 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 13.99 BCLS Producer: SpierDistributors: Whitehall Premium Wines & Spirits
