White River Chenin Blanc 2012

White River is from the Bergsig Estate, set amongst beautiful countryside in Worcester and dominated by a mountainous backdrop and the sweeping Breede River. The Lategan family have tended the land for over 150 years and young De Wet Lategan made his mark soon after taking the helm, becoming South Africa’s ‘Young Winemaker of the Year’.His sorbet fresh Chenin Blanc is very crisp, thanks to night harvesting of the grapes at the peak of ripeness, while cool fermentation has captured the lively lemon, lime and green apple character. Serve chilled as an apĂ©ritif or enjoy with white meat dishes, and pork.
