Product Description

  • Chenin Blanc, W.O. Western Cape. Fairtrade. Wine of South Africa.
  • Visit www.info.fairtrade.net
  • Every last grape in our Fairtrade wines comes from a collective of growers based in the beautiful Western Cape vineyards. South Africa’s signature white grape, Chenin Blanc ripens to perfection during the long sunny days of this Mediterranean style climate. Our dry, fruity Chenin Blanc is the perfect match for fresher, more delicate flavours – from creamy sauces to mild curries. It tastes of apples, pears and honey, with the subtlest hint of oak.
