Paul Roos Die Skoolhoof 2015
Price: R225
76% Chenin Blanc, 24% Chardonnay. Spontaneous fermentation in 300-litre barrels, 18% new. A subtle nose of citrus and peach, ginger and spice plus some yeasty complexity. Rich and broad with moderate acidity. Characterful but perhaps a bit short of zest.

Editor’s rating: 89/100.

Some floral fragrance before plums, cherries and cassis plus vanilla and spice on the nose.
