Remember The Gooseberry Bush from the Bon Courage estate? It's long been a customer favourite. Here's a brand new release from the same winery that we think you'll adore. It's Chenin Blanc and, as its name suggests, it's deliciously zesty and lemony.
Chenin Blanc is the speciality white grape of South Africa, "crying out for more attention" (Jancis Robinson MW). It's always lemony fresh, but with the drought conditions of the last few vintages, it has phenomenal intensity too. This fabulous fruit sensation white is from the Bruwer family, who have been crafting wines for nearly a century. The current head of winemaking Jacques boasts three generations of family know how and over the years, the team has picked up numerous medals, awards and trophies. He joined with 'Young Winemaker of the Year' Philip Viljoen and delivered us this zesty white. It's all about fruit – lemony and fresh. The perfect white to have ready in the fridge. Great on its own, or with spicy dishes, chicken or salmon.
"For fresh-tasting, characterful white, full of fruit, chill down a bottle of this Cape Chenin"
Beth Willard Buyer for South Africa
