Carinus, Polkadraai Chenin Blanc 750ml 2018South Africa, Stellenbosch
'The Polkadraai Chenin Blanc 2018 from Carinus Family Vineyards as made by Chris Alheit has appeared on the market without any fanfare. With top growers and a top winemaker behind it, the wine is not surprisingly pretty damn good. A wonderfully complex nose with notes of honeysuckle, white and yellow fruit and, if you look hard enough, a little reduction that only adds interest. The palate has a weightless intensity about it – extraordinary fruit concentration to go with punchy acidity before a pithy, slightly bitter finish. Layered and long, this is super stuff.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 95/100
