About This Wine:
As the unofficial drink of the Riebeek Valley, the Riebeek Chenin Blanc is the perfect every day wine that offers uncomplicated quality for the novice and connoisseur alike.
Packed with upfront tropical fruit, the nose charms with an abundance of guava and gooseberries. These fruit flavors follow through on the palate, balanced by a crisp acidity to ensure a fresh and fruity style of wine.
Very accessible and suited to almost every occasion, the Riebeek Chenin Blanc never disappoints.
Enjoy well-chilled as a lovely, crisp glass on its own or ideal for al fresco dining with light summer fare. Beautiful with salads, anti pasti and seafood.
Only free run juice was used. After settling and acid adjustment, it was inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation was colder than usual to capture upfront fruit flavours. Two specially selected tanks were blended and bottled early to enjoy as fresh as possible.
Varietal: 100% Chenin Blanc
Ratings & Reviews
"The 2018 Chenin Blanc from Riebeek Cellars in Swartland offers a classic feel in its pear and orchard fruits, notes of dried hay, medium body, and building minerality. It has classic Chenin Blanc character, good acidity and freshness, and it sells for a song." - Jeb Dunnuck (March 27th 2019)
Wine Spectator Magazine (2018 Vintage):
"A fresh, crisp style, with herb details amid the green plum, lime zest and kiwifruit flavors. Shows nice zip through the finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported." - JM (Region Swartland)
