Wine Of The Week

A Christmas Of More

Our wonderful Wine Of The Week this week is EenZaamheid Chenin Blanc 2021

Tasting Notes:

The 2021 is stylistically very similar to our previous vintages. It has the same attractive aromas of bruised yellow apples, hay and a touch of beeswax. The palate displays a lovely richness and a fleshy mid palate texture as derived from the sur lie ageing process. The fruit flavours are perfectly balanced by the wine’s crisp acidity. The oak component never overpowers the wine’s inherent varietal notes but adds subtle interest in the background. Lengthy flavours of baked apple pie and winter melon linger on the finish. Our Chenin Blanc is known for its exceptional ageing potential. It will reward careful cellaring for up to 10 years from vintage.

Awards and Ratings:

  • 5* (95 points) – Platter’s Guide 2024

  • Top 10 (93 points) – Winemag / Prescient Chenin Blanc Report 2023
