Then you’ve come to the right place because we think this Chenin Blanc from South Africa will pair well with pretty much anything! Grapes picked from one of Vrede en Lusts single vineyard’s, the Kogelberg block are taken back to the winery to be processed. Fermentation takes place in a range of different French oak barrels, and the wine also spends some time on its lees which helps develop those creamy notes that are obvious on the palate. Its rich and full bodied, bursting with citrus, peach and notes of honey. Drink now!" - Wine Central Tasting Panel

A full bodied wine with typical Chenin Blanc characteristics of orange peel and citrus aromas. A rich palate with hints of honey and ripe fruit – the perfect food partner.
