Cederberg Chenin Blanc 2021

Cederberg Chenin Blanc 2021

This Chenin blanc shows true purity of fruit such as white pear, grapefruit and green apple leading to a refreshingly crisp mineral palate.

This wine will be well suited to creamy dishes. It does especially well with creamy tomato soup and light curry sauces or citrus dominated salads and dishes. Greek salad works well.

Cheese: Goats cheese (chevin) or well matured asiago both work. Also try feta and mozzarella.
