Black Pearl Chenin Blanc 2016

About the Wine

The Black Pearl Chenin is a lively, medium to full bodied wine with zippy flavours of creamy pineapple, pink lady apples and melon. The wine has the kind of texture you want from a good Chenin, with a long finish and enough acid to keep it crisp and vibrant. The wine has a full nose of tropical fruit leads onto limes and apricots on the palate. A truly complex and superb white wine, with only a couple thousand bottles produced.

 

The 2016 vintage is delicious on its own, but has tons of flavours, making it a versatile partner for many different dishes including Thai food, curries, and pulled pork.
