Porcupine Ridge Chenin Blanc 2017


Franschhoek Valley, South Africa 

750ml / 13.5% ABV / Screwcap

Grape Variety: Chenin Blanc

Although at first relatively shy, the nose displays a melange of fruit salad with aromas of greengage, fresh lime, yellow apple, green melon - even whiffs of angelica and lemon verbena - creating complexity. The tropical character follows through onto the palate, with flavors of passion fruit, guava, pineapple, and papaya. The mid-palate is slightly flinty, yet balanced, with a medium body and vibrant, integrated acidity. Hints of preserved quince, green fig and tarragon linger on the palate with a nostalgic streak of chalky minerality.

  Shellfish, spicy cuisine, lean fish, mild and soft cheese.
