Alvi`s Drift Private Cellar Albertus Viljoen Chenin Blanc
Dry Chenin Blanc (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older


Pale straw colour with a beautiful brilliance and youthful lime green edge. The wine displays attractive notes of granadilla, white peach and a hint of fine herbs and honeycomb which follow through on the palate. The palate persists to a pleasantly lingering end with a fresh lime aftertaste. A medium bodied wine, well rounded with a good energy about it. The creamy mouthfeel, refreshing crisp acidity and touching delicate elegance ensures that the wine will show well with cellaring. It will show optimally when decanted if opened within the first three years after bottling. Best served 10 - 12˚C.

Albertus Viljoen Chenin Blanc pairs good with Coconut Curry fish or Saffron Mussel Bisque.
