Pilgrim Chenin Blanc 2021


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.

Food pairing:

Any dishes with rich, deep flavours will be a superb pairing with this wine. Seafood dishes will also be a winner. Below is a link to a mouth watering recipe for scrumptious Miso glazed Chicken Thigh Espetadas by The Foodfox, Ilse van der Merwe
