|Charming Chenin from Swartland|
|Ripe, juicy fruit and a touch of toast|
|Delicious drink wine that tastes like more|
Winemaker couple Van Niekerk is not only groundbreaking in a figurative sense. These pioneers from Piekenierskloof make great wines from grapes from Piekenierskloof and neighboring Swartland. Take, for example, this particularly charming Chenin Blanc.
Where in the past Swartland was mainly known for its wheat production, today it is a booming wine region. The winemakers are adventurous and innovative, the wines rich and intensely fruity. The warm and dry climate offers a double advantage: it produces ripe, very tasty grapes, which are also in perfectly healthy condition due to the low risk of rot and mold.
The grapes from Piekenierskloof are a nice addition: thanks to the slightly cooler location of the vineyards, the grapes here retain more freshness and aroma. After the manual harvest, the grapes are crushed. Jaco and Cerina only use the 'free run juice' (ie the juice that is released without having to squeeze). Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, after which the wine matures for another five months on the fine yeasts.
This makes for a wonderfully mild, juicy South African Chenin with notes of tropical fruit and some spiciness. Easy to drink, versatile and yet surprising every time: as far as we're concerned, this is the ideal drink and house wine!
Ideal to drink as an aperitif, or to serve with light dishes and salads with fish or chicken.
Pale yellow colored wine with refined aromas of peach, mandarin and toast in the nose. Nicely fruity in taste with a delicious juiciness and balanced freshness. The final is dry and medium length with fine grapefruit bitters.
