Lievland 2017 Old Vines Chenin Blanc
100% Chenin Blanc | Alc: 13.5%
Paarl, South Africa
Lievland, directly translated, means Love Land, this wine is representative of the versatility of old vine Chenin Blanc. It has a light straw color with a golden hue. Showing notes of white peach, citrus and pineapple on the nose, this wine has a rich and ripe mouth-feel coupled with vibrant acidity which contributes to the lingering zesty finish. The freshness and complexity of this wine will enable it to develop gracefully over the next 5-7 years. This Chenin can easily be enjoyed on its own, but can also complement dishes such as smoked pork, Cape Malay bobotie, or creamy seafood.
“Scents of honeycomb, beeswax and yellow melon abound on the nose of this wine, with some light sweet spice, baked apple and yellow flower accents. It’s medium in weight, with ample acidity to lift the ripe orange, apple and pineapple core flavors and a slight prickle to the palate.” 89 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
