Longridge Ou Steen Chenin Blanc 2017

By , 23 July 2021

Grapes from a block planted in 1981, the Ou Steen from Longridge is made in the style of a Loire Demi Sec, that is to say semi-sweet and the 2017 has a residual sugar of 14,4 g/l to go with a total acidity of 6.1 g/l.

The nose shows lemon, peach, dried herbs, and some leesy complexity while the palate is full with a lovely sweet ‘n sour quality – concentrated fruit matched by vibrant acidity. There’s no denying the sweetness now but this wine should only become more interesting over the years. Price: R395 a bottle.

CE’s rating: 90/100.
