Nativo White Blend 2019

By , 12 May 2021

Viognier haters, don’t run away. The White Blend 2019 under the Nativo label as made by Swartland producer Hughes Family Wines contains 77% of this sometimes quite heady variety along with 9% Chenin Blanc, 8% Roussanne and 6% Grenache Blanc but works well.

Complex aromatics of peach, apricot and pineapple, a slight waxy note and some notes of herbs and spice in the background precede a palate showing good depth, punchy acidity and a savoury finish. It’s well balanced with just the right amount of weight and layers of flavour. Price: R195 a bottle.

CE’s rating: 92/100.
