Msenangu (Chenin Blanc/Chardonnay Blend 2017)
Hints of tropical citrus aromas, pear drop sweetness and a hint of honeysuckle, finishing on the nose set this Chenin Blanc/Chardonnay 2017 Blend as a rare, yet easy every-day wine.
The grapes are selected parcels throughout the Western Cape and the wine is crafted by Hendrik Snyman.
Varietal: 71% Chenin Blanc, 29% Chardonnay
Wine of Origin: Western Cape
Appellation: Cape Mosaic Chenin Blanc – Chardonnay Vintage: 2017
Tasting note: An explosion of ripe tropical fruit flavours on the pallet. The natural fermentation gives it a layered fruit dimension that ends in a lusciously juicy finish that is very well integrated and balanced with a bright acidity supported by the subtle use of wood
IN THE CELLAR:
The grapes were crushed then pressed, and the juice cold settled for two days. Fermentation took place at 14° – 16° C. Following fermentation, the varieties were blended allowing the varietal character of each one to enhance the complexity and depth of the blend. The wine was left on the fine lees for complexity and integration.
