Quinta Essentia Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2019
Varietal: 100% Chenin Blanc. These old vines are dry farmed, and produce optimally ripe fruit with excellent sugar and acid balance. The vines bear their fruit about 20 inches from the ground. The mature vines benefit from a naturally lower vigour, and thereby carry their fruit in full exposure to the sun, which results in great flavour concentration.
Taste: A light yellow colour with a green tinge suggests a cooler vintage. Fresh tropical fruits, bright peach, yellow apple, and a trademark hint of flint, greet the nose. The palate starts off with expressive ripe orchard fruits and then melds into honeyed almond, ginger spice and notes of creme brulee. The wine is poised and balanced, with a great combination of ripeness and mineral tension.
