McFarlane Monday’s Child Chenin Blanc 2020
By Christian Eedes, 12 November 2021
The 2020 vintage of Monday’s Child Chenin Blanc from Alex McFarlane is not that stylistically different from the 2019 other than it shows more certainty of vision, the wine purer and more harmonious.
Grapes from the same 1988 block on Polkadraai Hills property Karibib, winemaking involved fermentation and maturation lasting some six months in barrel. The nose shows a little reduction before pear, peach and hay while the palate is wonderfully linear – good clarity of fruit and racy acidity before a pithy finish. Price: R220 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 92/100.
