2016 Heuningby South Africa Chenin Blanc

Sourced from vineyards planted near the picturesque Western Cape town of Wellington, this wine features lovely honeycomb aromatics that waft from the glass. Ripe, luscious orchard fruit notes are interwoven with additional honeycomb nuances on the palate, culminating in a richer texture, yet the wine is kept fresh by a balancing acidity. A delightful alternative to a fruit-forward Chardonnay, this oaked version of Chenin Blanc will complement richer seafood and pork dishes.
