McFarlane Monday’s Child Chenin Blanc 2019

By , 14 September 2020

Alexandra McFarlane, previously winemaker at Paarl property Druk My Niet, now makes wine under her own label, maiden release being Monday’s Child 2019, a Chenin Blanc from a 31-year-old Polkadraai vineyard.

A combination of natural and commercial yeasts were used for fermentation and the wine was matured in old oak for seven months. The nose shows pear, white peach, a hint of lemon plus some yeasty complexity while the palate is light bodied with bright acidity and a savoury finish. This has both a delicacy and a certain piquancy that makes it very more-ish. Price: R200 a bottle.

CE’s rating: 90/100.
