Cederberg Winery, Chenin Blanc, Cederberg, South Africa 2021
100% Chenin Blanc
APPLE & LEMON. CLEAN, CRISP CLARITY & ZESTY MINERAL
As exciting and diverse as are the many Middle-Loire specialties made from Chenin Blanc, it’s surprising that more new world regions and producers haven’t attempted to prioritize it as a distinctive showpiece. Fortunately, South Africa has long gone above and beyond to right this mystifying wrong. This gloriously bright, zesty gem has the combination of tart golden apple and citrus, refreshingly clean mineral notes, and energetic acidity that we cherish.
Serving Suggestion: Smoked fish (or ceviche) on rustic toast or rusks w/ capers. Citrusy Kalamata tapenade.
