Wolf of Wellington - 88p
This week we bring you a beautiful beast from South Africa. A robust and punchy, yet elegant Chenin Blanc from a small plot above the town of Wellington.
I’ve been a huge fan of Chenin Blanc for more than a decade, and especially the ones from South Africa. I would go as far as say that the best Chenin Blanc’s in the world come from this great country.
We visited South Africa a few years back and you can check out the story here:
Our pick this week comes from vines planted back in 1974. They have low yields and great concentration. The soil is mostly Granite, which pairs excellent with the Chenin grape. The wine was matured in both French oak and steel and aging potential is 4-6 years.
