ADS Chenin Blanc is a light straw in colour, the chenin blanc is full bodied yet elegant. The wine is very viscous, giving it a wonderful mouth feel and texture. The acid is well integrated and balanced resulting in a palate that shows great length and fullness for an unwooded wine. Primary fruit flavours of passion fruit and ripe guavas dominate the nose and palate. The resulting wine shows a rare combination of intense aromas, complexity and length which is an excellent example of South Africa chenin blanc. Compliments fish, salads and white meat dishes.
