2015 Botanica Wines ‘The Mary Delany Collection’ Chenin Blanc
Tasting Notes ~ I really don’t know if there is a better South African Chenin Blanc out there?! 100 percent dry farmed Chenin Blanc that was hand sorted, crushed and destemmed. Half was spontaneously fermented in stainless steel tanks and half was spontaneously fermented in 400 litre French barrels. After fermentation, the wine was left on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks/oak barrels for 9 months. Complex and elegant, with layers of pure, concentrated pear, citrus and stone fruit flavors, mouth-watering acidity and a tangy, mineral core. Less than 400 cases produced.
