Mount Abora Koggelbos Chenin Blanc 2014

Not for the uninitiated.

The Koggelbos 2014 from Mount Abora, an oxidatively made Swartland Chenin, is pretty out there. Deep yellow in colour, the nose shows dried stone fruit, honey, a hint of earth and some leesy complexity. The palate is extraordinarily rich and flavourful (despite a relatively low alcohol of 13%) with nicely coated acidity. Lots to like but you wouldn’t necessarily call it “refined”.  Wine Cellar price: R110 a bottle.

#WinemagRating: 92/100.
