Chenin Blanc from SA 💛💛💛
Did you know that Chenin blanc is the most widely planted grape 🍇 variety in South Africa?
It’s also one of my favourite white grape varieties and when I was in SA this year it was 100% my white grape of choice!
You’ll also find this grape in the Loire valley in the region of Vouvray and making up some of the crémant in the Loire valley too!
Chenin is such a stunning grape variety and the wine I’m drinking this evening is an absolutely beautiful expression from @gabrielskloof
The grapes are from old vines and then wild fermented in french oak which add to the amazing character and complexity of this wine.
Also served in my new zalto wine glass ;)
