View Detail
The Villion family was, so the history books tell us, the very first Huguenot to settle permanently at the Cape of Good Hope in the mid-1600s. Almost four centuries later, Kobie Viljoen still proudly carries on his family's estate-and now with 20 years of winemaking under his belt, is proving himself a worthy vintner and an important proponent of South African wine. This Chenin Blanc has inviting, ripe peach aromas. Distinctive, salty, spice and quince flavors characterize the spontaneous yeast fermentation. Fruit from 25 year-old vineyards add apricot- and caramel-spice complexity and rounds this multi-layered Chenin off to perfection. Full mouth-filling entry with a sense of sweetness from the Chenin’s primary, stone-fruit flavors. Young acidity gives the wine a lingering taste quality. Well balanced with excellent oak - fruit integration leads to a textured finish.
