Axle Chenin Blanc, Darling, South Africa, 2020
Mealy and driven by a rich saline minerality owing to the ocean facing vineyard the fruit comes from in Darling. This possesses an abundance of stone fruit including yellow plum and lychee complemented by kiwi skin.
The palate is opulent, given the 9 months in barrel, whilst displaying a charming freshness and vivacity with lemon zest and ripe pear. Don’t just take our word for it though, this is the third release of the wine and the previous two have been awarded the coveted Five Star accolade by John Platter, yet we think this could be the best yet… you heard it here first.
