White River Chenin Blanc 2010

Worcester, on the other side of the Du Toitskloof Mountains from Paarl and Stellenbosch, is some of the most beautiful wine country in the world, dominated by a mountainous backdrop and the Breede River. Here, besides producing superior wines, the Lategan family is also committed to conservation. Their estate boasts a rich diversity of flora and fauna, with some 8,600 plant species alone.Former ‘Young Winemaker of the Year’ De Wet Lategan likes to work as naturally and simply as possible to capture the unique terroir of the vineyards in his wines. Being fresh and lively with grassy, lemony and gooseberry character, White River is well suited to aromatic Thai stir-fries, crab and chilli pasta, or salads such as a fennel and orange.
