Pungent nose...offering ripe peaches and pears with a fresh dose of sea salt air. The palate starts with a kiss of sweetness but quickly transitions back to a fresh ocean saltiness. I'm salivating for oysters...what a perfect little seafood gem.

I'm fully in agreement with the gurus on this one. I like chenin blanc, especially for its mouth feel, but sometimes find it a bit shy on the aromatic side. This blend amps up the aromatics, and has beguiling complexity and excellent purity of fruit. Fine value.

Slightly bitter on entry from the chenin blanc. Some pronounced creaminess mid-way through and then a clean finish. Good acidity. A wine with lots of personality!

Very fine organic white blend fro South Africa. Ripe orchard fruit but with crisp lemony acidity. Nicely balanced and a lingering finish. Excellent value, great rec by JS/DL/MG. Tasted April 2017.
