This wine pays tribute to the many Italians who played a pivotal role in engineering and winemaking in our country in the early 1900’s. It pays homage to Theodore Esposto and his team who arrived in 1914, and built the water canal in the wine growing region of the Olifants River. This particular Chenin hails from the vineyard ‘Skurfberg’ owned by the now celebrated Basie van Lill. ( Think Sadie, Alheit….at a fraction of the price ).
Villa Esposto Chenin Blanc 2021
It shows opulent aromas of citrus and tropical notes, underlined with subtle oaky hints. Fermentation in a combination of new, 2nd and 3rd-fill barrels contribute a creamy texture and a long, lingering finish. The telltale backbone of Skurfberg minerality forms a firm line down the centre of this amazing value wine.
Serve with fresh fish.
