Tasting notes:
'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,, 95/100

About Carinus Family Vineyards:
