The Wild Olive Old Vines Chenin Blanc 2020

Western Cape, South AfricaFrom the uber-branding folks behind Grape Grinder, this wine comes from two bush vine planting in Swartland. This was fermented cool in stainless where it remained for 6 months on lees prior to bottling. Crisp pear, green melon, grapefruit rule a slick, sleek palate, finishing with a fleck of stony, saline spicing. A tight, fresh, quick view of South Africa's most important grape.Tasted: 20 May 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 12.29 BCLS Producer: The Grape GrinderDistributors: The Delf Group
