Raats Family Wines Old Vine 2013 Chenin Blanc

This wine epitomises the understated elegance of Chenin Blanc. Its restrained, yet complex, nose offers quince, ripe pear, orange blossoms, nettles and spice. On the palate the wine shows granadilla, pineapple and lemongrass and the cloves, nutmeg and ginger of the nose follow through against a backdrop of vibrant acidity, ending with a long spicy, limey note. The wine’s beauty lies in its lightness of touch and in the elegant way its complexity is revealed. Enjoy with Tempura prawns, grilled calamari tubes, a pear/walnut/rocket salad, roasted red pepper soup, spicy chicken wings, grilled halloumi cheese, tarragon chicken, seafood bisque or tarte tatin.
