Leeuwenkuil, Chenin Blanc 750ml 2019South Africa, Swartland
Leeuwenkuil offers staggering value in general and, having caused a stir when their 2013 Shiraz was given a 92-point score in Decanter, they have once again come up with a stunner. We think the Leeuwenkuil Chenin Blanc 2019 is possibly the best value white in SA. It’s absolutely delicious!
'100% Swartland Chenin Blanc. Unwooded and sourced from 30-year-old goblet vines, the fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with natural yeasts. It is left on the lees for as long as possible before being bottled. A remarkable feat but clearly what we do best. Fresh, attractive notes of white stone fruit and pear follow on to a vibrant, fruity palate that is sumptuous, crisp and lingering. With only a 12,5% alcohol this is a perfectly-pitched wine for all occasions.' – James Pietersen (March 2018)
'A refined and racy offering with vibrant aromas of green apple and tropical fruit. Its good minerality leads to a wonderfully fresh finish.' – Winemaker
Alc: 12.5% | RS: 2.1 g/L | TA: 5.8 g/L | PH: 3.4
