Chenin Blanc 2021, Truter Family Wines

South Africa
Chenin Blanc
Fresh & Floral

Chenin Blanc that hits all the spots. When we put this in subscription boxes we always get asked for it again and again...

"Please can you include two bottles of this in our next box?"

"Delightfully fresh, dry white wine"

"Really pleased with this wine - it was light, fresh and zesty"

Great work from the Truter family in South Africa's Western Cape. Granite soil descending into the Wellington valley provide the vines with a rich, organic, oak leaf topsoil that gives way to shale and alluvial soil. Hugo and family destem the grapes, press them and let them settle before fermentation. The reason for the extra depth of flavour in this popular wine is because the wine is racked and kept on its lees (sediment) for 2 months before bottling. 

Pale straw colour with a vibrant green rim. Citrus, yellow plum nose with a succulent, fruity mouthfeel and a crisp mineral finish.
