Botanica Mary Delany Collection Chenin Blanc 2012 (4.4/5)


It appears med- lemon. On the nose it's clean offering, with medium intensity, notes of white fruits (apples, Williams pears, melon, peach), white flowers, hints of oak and sur-lie (yeasty) accents of bread crust (it smells like a 'still' version of a Franciacorta wine, just to make a Pindaric flight).

 On the palate is dry, with medium acidity, medium alcohol, medium body, with good flavor intensity and satisfying waxy sensation coating the palate towards a med+ finish.  Very clean, focused and balanced.
Very good quality, Drink Now but will keep and develop for 5 years at least, Premium Price, 100% old vines Chenin Blanc, Citrusdal Mountain, Western Cape, South Africa.
