Val du Charron Four White Legs 2011
By Christian Eedes, 18 June 2013
Val du Charron is situated in Wellington not far from the Bain’s Kloof Pass. The story goes that during the 19th century a horse with four white legs could traverse the pass toll-free and hence the name of this wine, which contains four white varieties – 47% Chenin Blanc, 41% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Viognier and 5% Semillon.
Citrus and peach plus a hint of waxiness. Good fruit expression, relatively bright acidity before a piquant finish. Nicely assembled and offers good value given the price of R69 a bottle from the farm.
