Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc 2012

Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc 2012

Ripe quince, pineapple and stone fruit, with some interesting savoury undertones. Lightly textured palate, with a hint of sweetness and balancing crunchy acid, results in a brisk finish

Juicy poolside sipper, also a winner with al fresco meals.
