Flotsam and Jetsam Heirloom Chenin Blanc, Western Cape, South Africa 2017

from 16.95

A wonderful and joyful expression of Chenin Blanc, swinging between white peach, honeysuckle, beeswax, ripe Golden Delicious, sweet pear and lime with lovely leesy depth and a gentle grip of tannins and touch of spice from the Stockinger barrels. It’s textured, ripe, round and mouth-filling but at the same time juicy and tangy and all the flavours are carved into sharp detail by a scalpel of acidity. The result is a wine with energy and ample power but no excess weight – think gymnast rather than sumo wrestler, and this makes it both a versatile food wine (fish, chicken or pork dishes and it can handle spice really well too) but also light enough to enjoy on its own. It’s a party in the mouth! Irresistible. 13.5% alc. Drink now – 2020.


Top tip from Chris Alheit: "For normal levels of enjoyment, pour it in your glass and drink it. To ramp it up, pour it on your friends, pets and house plants."
