Tasting notes:

As the unofficial drink of the Riebeek Valley, this Chenin Blanc is the perfect everyday wine that offers uncomplicated quality for the novice and connoisseur alike. Packed with upfront tropical fruit, the nose charms with an abundance of guava and gooseberries. These fruit flavours follow through on the pallet, balanced by a crisp
acidity to ensure a fresh and fruity style of wine.
