Kunjani Chenin Blanc 2022

Kunjani Chenin Blanc 2022

R192,00

A pale lemon colour with a slight green tinge presents itself in the glass. On the nose an array of fruit aromas develop as the wine is exposed to oxygen. Expect Golden Delicious apples, Forelle pears, tropical pineapple, white guava, yellow stone fruit and tart quince. The palate is dry with a medium  acidity, low tannins, medium alcohol, and a pleasing full-flavoured intensity. There is an excellent follow through from the nose to the palate. The wine is youthful but generous and rich in style due to a large portion being fermented in oak, offering the best of both worlds – slight oak and richness, as well as bountiful fruit and freshness.

More Information

In the cellar

This wine was fermented in barrel using indigenous yeast. The balance of 60% was fermented in stainless steel tanks using Anchor Alchemy 1 yeast which produces a lot of esters in the wine that gives lovely stone fruit and floral characteristics. No barrel maturation took place. After fermentation, the wine is racked off the lees, protein stabilised, filtered, and finally bottled. This final blend comprises 96.4% Chenin blanc with a dash of Rousanne and Verdelho.

In the vineyard

The grapes were harvested between 17 and 27 February 2021.

Ageing

This wine is made to drink now, however, if stored in the proper and appropriate conditions it can age for 2 to 3 years.

Cultivar

Chenin Blanc

Food Pairing

Pairs well with light curry and Mediterranean chicken and fresh salmon salad.
