Carinus Family Vineyards Chenin Blanc 2019
By Christian Eedes, 27 January 2020
At approximately R150 a bottle, the standard-label Chenin Blanc from growers Danie and Hugo Carinus and winemaker Lukas van Loggerenberg is fast becoming one of the most reliable mid-tier white wines around.
The 2019 is again bang on the money. From Swartland grapes, the nose has a floral top note before pear, peach and citrus plus some yeasty complexity. The palate is light and fresh yet layered with flavour – great fruit definition and full of energy.
CE’s rating: 91/100.
