South Africa — Stellenbosch • $15.95 • 89/100

This Chenin Blanc is sourced largely from old bush vines from the Helderberg Mountain region in Stellenbosch. It is medium yellow, with lightly smoky, honey and beeswax aromas backing a core of white flowers, lemons, pears and yellow apples. Firm acidity is balanced by a rich palate, where some riper apricot and peach notes add to the complexity, and lead into a harmonious finish with lingering fruit, dried honey and beeswax. 30% aged in mixed use Burgundian oak barrels, the remainder in stainless steel. Excellent value indeed. • LCBO Release 03/04/2017 • LCBO id#739995 • Find it at your nearest LCBONOBLE ESTATES WINES & SPIRITS INC. (Agent)
