Pilgrim Chenin Blanc 2022


Region: Voor Paardeberg

Tasting note:

Color: Golden light yellow with a slight green tinge Nose: Primarily, this wine is a step ahead its predecessors, as it has more sweet notes and even some interesting earth tones emanating from the 10% whole bunch fermentation. Skin ferment aromas are very prevalent like some toffee and caramel, but even more perfumy notes like jasmine and elderflower The “youthful” skin component of tilled earth and freshly cut hay is key, then with some age you can expect the usual suspects – marmalade, blood orange, lemon rind – to give their amazing display! Palate: My intention was to pick slightly earlier to harness more natural acidity and in so doing give the wine a more succulent core. I think this wine is perfectly balanced, with sweet marmalade and bright pith on opposites, underpinned with a finely tuned tannin, and the acidity that remains is just enough to make this wine end off focussed and long. This wine is going to be a belter! Perfect for aging, amazing to drink now!” – Winemaker
