Stellenrust 51 Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc 2015

The 51 Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch cellar Stellenrust is delicious but bloody gigantic (price: R140 a bottle). On the nose, citrus, pear, peach and apricot plus a hint of reduction. The palate meanwhile is utterly luscious, possessing both depth and breadth before a long and gently savoury finish. It makes a huge impression […]

Sijnn White 2015
