Essence du Cap Chenin Blanc
The wine is brilliantly clear with specs of green. The nose is fresh with aromas of tropical fruit opening up into lime notes with a touch of oak spice. The initial tropical aromas follow through on the pallet with hints of citrus complimented with a dash of butterscotch from the time spent on wood. It has a lingering, crisp finish and is definitely an extremely food friendly wine.
This wine works wonders with seafood such as shellfish, crayfish, oysters and mussels. It is a good choice with Thai and light chicken dishes as well as a mild bobotie. Serve chilled, but not ice cold.
