Tasting Notes

Chenin Blanc might call the Loire Valley home but it has a long history in South Africa too.

Here, top SA winemaker Adi Badenhorst has made an apple fruit-filled gem, with pea, honey and spice notes too.

Works a treat with lightly spiced foods, or with a simple roast chicken.

Storage Instructions

To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, Fiona Beckett said: "Swartland is the region that’s rightly proud of its Chenin. It still has old vines from the days when it used to make brandy and these have been snapped up by enterprising winemakers such as Adi Badenhorst. Try the very reasonably priced Finest Swartland Chenin Blanc. (His Swartland Shiraz which I've already recommended at the same price, is ace too.)"

Fiona Beckett - The Guardian Magazine 04/05/2013

Of the 2012 vintage, Jamie Goode said: "Chenin Blanc, a grape from the Loire Valley in France, has been successfully adopted by South Africa. It works brilliantly in this deliciously rounded wine, showing lovely flavours of apple, pear and citrus."

Jamie Goode - S Magazine (Sunday Express) 01/09/2013

Of the 2012 vintage, Olly Smith said: "Supreme quality for a white at this price, with enough richness to cope with a jot of spice in your cooking. Fleshy and fab."

Olly Smith - Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday 01/09/2013

Of the 2012 vintage, Hamish Anderson said: "Swartland is an hour's drive to the north of Cape Town, and its grapes used to go into bulk wine or brandy production. Not it's one of the world's most exciting regions. A wealth of old vines - rare in South Africa - can turn out fleshy, interesting wines such as this, even at this humble price."

Hamish Anderson - Daily Telegraph Magazine 19/10/2013
