Villa Esposto Chenin Blanc 2021

By , 3 June 2022



Just astounding that Villa Esposto Chenin Blanc 2021 as made by Klawer Cellars using grapes from a 1982 Skurfberg vineyards grown by the celebrated Basie van Lill is available for the princely sum of R130 a bottle.

The nose is evocative with notes of peach, apricot, pineapple and honeysuckle while the palate is deep and rich with tangy acidity and a savoury finish. Super-concentrated and full of flavour.

CE’s rating: 92/100.

    Hi Christian,
    I read your review and because I enjoy trying new wines I went and purchased a case. I will be the first to acknowledge that I am a devout wine enthusiast but unfortunately I will not be labelled as a connoisseur. Secondly I know that wine is very personal. My opinion of this Chenin differ significantly from your score and hence my question whether your bottle came from the same batch as mine. I will gladly donate one of my bottles to you for a second review. Could I perhaps deliver it to your office?

      Hi Wessel, I suppose the first question to ask is: What was your experience of the wine? In any event, I’d be glad to re-look the wine – deliveries to: 44 Liesbeek Rd, Rosebank Cape Town.
