The Usana Chenin Blanc is a beautifully balanced wine. The natural fermentation added a softer, creamier mouthfeel while the oak added complexity and body to the wine. On the nose and palate there are hints of white peach and pear, a hint of apple with a touch of toastiness from the barrel aging.
Upfront pears drops, pawpaw with juicy tropical summer melon on the palate. Nice mouth filling with hints of mango on a great fresh and crisp finish. Exceptional with shellfish, vegetarian dishes containing aubergine, leeks and peppers, salads with a light vinaigrette or tangy mayonaisse, oysters, asparagus with hollandaise and goat’s milk cheese
Also known as ‘Steen’, the Chenin grapes from these 30- to 50-year-old vineyards revealed even more quality and intensity than could have been hoped for, proving that age eliminates the need for blending to achieve a high quality and intense white wine in a classic style.
Beautiful white blossoms, tropical fruit with hints of vanilla on the palate. Rich, full and creamy with a well balanced mid palate and elegant apricot that lingers on the finish. This beautifully strucuted Chenin can be served and paired with varied spicy dishes, full flavoured fish, roast chicken, duck, pork chops and truffles. Ideal with crayfish,...
This ripe tropical Chenin blanc displays fresh crunchy apple notes before bursting onto the palate with a mouth-tingling crispness, leading to a long fruit-laden finish. Pairs well with Lightly spiced chicken curry or sushi with a dash of wasabi and ginger.
Anima has a nose that develops intriguingly in the glass. Winter melon, pineapple, lime and a hint of honey confirm the elegance and fullness of this softly wooded, supple Chenin Blanc. The palate is dense with fresh fruit flavours of gooseberry, quince and peach, all harmonising superbly with the soulful minerality that gives this wine its name.
