Cederberg Chenin Blanc 2005

Cederberg Chenin Blanc 2005

A consistent Cape benchmark over 9 vintages. Made from older vines – always impressive! Recognised for its powerful nose of grapefruit / melon / citrus flavours which jumps out of the glass. Mouth-tingling crispness with long fruit laden finish. Superb food compatability. Definitely one of the most consistent Chenin producers in South Africa.

Superb food compatability.
