Swerwer Chenin Blanc 2021

Swartland, Coastal Region, South AfricaJasper makes this wine from four dry-farmed granitic Paardeberg vineyards, and vines averaging 40 years, with around 5% skin contact, native fermented in older French barrels, where it remains 10 months on lees. There's a lovely fine buzzy texture imbuing this medium bodied white, lacing the gentle lees bed with citrus pith, bosc pear, and fynbos oils through a saline finish. Subtle, harmonious, and drinking smartly now.Tasted: 31 August 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
