Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc 2004

Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc 2004

Lively melange of mixed fruits on the nose; delightful fresh fruit salad nuances waft from glass to nose to remind and recall outdoor summer meals. Zippy and crisp natural acidity enhances the melon overtones on the medium bodied palate. The fruit and acid profile is splendidly integrated and leads to a long and fruited yet clean aftertaste.
