Pilgrim Chenin Blanc 2021

Voor Paardeberg, Paarl, Coastal Region, South AfricaFrom Paardeberg sandstone and clay, 1/3 of this chenin was pressed whole cluster, while the rest were destemmed and crushed, with partial skin contact for 7+ days. Once all the lots were fermented, they were blended and rested in neutral barrels for 8 months. Lively and fresh, with a driving lemon and white grapefruit acidity drawing Anjou pear, crunchy Asian pear along a slender, taut palate to a snappy finish.Tasted: 13 April 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
