Natte Valleij Axle Chenin Blanc 2019

Darling, Coastal Region, South AfricaFrom cinsault-centric Alex Milner, this is a delish Darling chenin from old dry farmed bush vines, planted in 1985. After a native ferment, this spent 9 months in neutral oak prior to bottling. A creamy flow of quince, yellow apples, white honey glides along a waxen palate, coming across much weightier than the 12 degrees would suggest, and finishing with a dollop of sunsweetened orchard fruits and pithy tangerine.Tasted: 16 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 33.00 private wine shops Producer: Natte ValleyDistributors: Sur Lie
