The 2014 vintage of the Vineyard Selection Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch producer won the trophy for best in class at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show last year and the 2015 is right up there again.
Intense white and yellow peach plus honeysuckle, spice and a little leesy complexity. The palate is flavour-packed, rich and full in structure but not short of freshness, while the finish is nicely savoury. Some vintages can be borderline OTT but in the case of the 2015, everything comes together for good. Extraordinary quality relative to price at R77 a bottle.
