2021 Testalonga 'Stay Brave' Chenin Blanc

$42.00

Place: Swartland, South Africa

Variety: Chenin Blanc

Farming: Organic

During the apartheid, the South African wine industry was completely dominated by one organisation which controlled everything from production to price, so it has only been since the early 1990s that independent winemakers have begun to emerge. One such producer is Craig Hawkins. Crafting wine in the Swartland he is helping reimagine South African wine. Craig's wines are complex and bewilder the bureaucracy such that he has occasionally been denied export certification due to his wines lacking ‘typicity’. His wines eschew convention in search of expression, resulting in unique, exciting experiences. 

A very pretty nose with top notes of flowers, herbs, ginger and other spice before lemon and orange. The palate displays lovely fruit expression to go with bright acidity and just a touch of phenolic grip – light and energetic. Irresistible.
