Metzer Family Maritime Chenin Blanc 2019
100% Chenin blanc. A single-vineyard wine from a bush vine parcel planted in 1980. The vineyard is situated a mere 4km’s from the shores of False Bay.
The vineyard’s pure fruit quality radiates pear, white peach and lemon. Bright stone fruit follows through on the palate which is marked by a rich texture and a soft, coated acidity. The wine has a persistent finish showing subtle hints of white spice and orange blossom.
