L'Equinox Wines - To Maike and The Rest 2021
(Swartland, South Africa)
100% Chenin Blanc, skin-fermented for added depth and texture, this is a complex and deep wine that retains plenty of immediacy and drinkability. A gorgeous nose of clean citrus minlging with orchard fruits carries over to the palate, which brings along a stunning savoury herbal element and a lengthy, satisfying finish. Top Chenin from an exciting young producer.
