  • Vintage: 2022
  • Grape: Chenin blanc
  • Region: South Africa
  • ABV: 12.5%

This bottle makes a great first impression. The artistic label and wax-dipped cork make it perfect for displaying at your next dinner party. The chenin blanc hails from South Africa, where the producers, Angus Paul, believe in minimal intervention when it comes to their winemaking, letting the landscape do the work.

The ancient vines grow through rocky granite soil and are pushed along by the Cape South Easter winds. Perfect Cellar assures us it’s this start in life that makes the vino “not merely a wine but a vivid, mouthwatering revelation, brimming with vitality and charm”. Sign us up.

The texture and flavour profile of this chenin blanc is said to be particularly tight, holding moorish acidity. Touted as being packed with notes of white stone fruits and golden apples, this wine should make for a great accompaniment for salads and fish, or you can enjoy a glass on its own. By the sounds of it, it’ll transport you to summery days.

If all that wasn’t enough to tempt you, this bottle currently has 25 per cent off from Thursday (15 February) to Monday (19 February). Cheers!
