Kat Brown Blog - Durbanville Hills Chenin Blanc
Go for the Durbanville Hills Chenin 2017. £13.95.
I enjoyed a glass or two of this lovely Chenin last Friday evening. I usually go for the False Bay Chenin with my fish and chips, but fancied an upgrade this week.....I was not disappointed!
Beautiful and vibrant, glistening like gold in the glass.
The wine is starting to develop well with three years of age. Tropical fruit aromas of pineapple, mangoes and apricots on the nose. On the palate are limes and a wonderful creamy oak texture and a hint of honey. A good lick of acidity to finish, complementing the fish and chips very nicely indeed. I didn’t finish the bottle on Friday night (trying to be good!), so went for this again on Monday evening (still tasting good by the way, after being opened for three days) and enjoyed a glass with roasted Mediterranean vegetables and melted cheese.
A real treat!
