False Bay Wild Yeast Chenin Blanc
This product is currently sold out.
The long wild yeast ferment provides bready aromas and additional complexity to this Chenin Blanc. Dried herbaceous notes, including fennel and aniseed from the nearby Fynbos, dominate the nose, followed by a creamy lemon character. The palate is reminiscent of the nose, with great textural complexity (attributable to the long, slow wild yeast fermentation), and more herbal characters. A versatile wine equally well suited to partner lobster and other seafood, risotto or herb roast chicken.
