Testalonga 'Cortez' Chenin Blanc 2017
Chenin Blanc from South Africa that's just as good as from the Loire Valley. Craig Hawkins from Swartland is making some of the best new age wines from South Africa. His Chenin Blanc is no exception - complex and wonderfully balanced. Nose is a little quiet at first but opens up beautifully, with a profile of Ya pears, lemongrass, stone fruit, grapefruit zest, green apples, honey suckle, ginger, spices, crisp acidity, and a long finish. You'll wonder where all the wine went!
