Scattered Earth Chenin Blanc 2020

Western Cape, South AfricaThe Western Cape is home to this introductory chenin, a grape that comes with a bit of the zinfandel crisis: you never know what you will get. Sweet or dry, fat or lean, fresh or dull, it comes with no playbook. Scattered Earth opens on the sweet richer side with exotic ripe melon, honeysuckle, and pineapple. There is a citrus undercurrent trying to keep in line, but it ends with a cloying note. Something spicy would be best to balance this wine out in the mouth.Tasted: 17 September 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 14.99 BCLS Producer: KWV InternationalDistributors: Dandurand
