2014 Sirkel (Scali) Chenin Blanc Voor-Paardeberg Paarl

SKU #1250617

Winemaker's Notes: "Expressive fresh, tropical fruit flavour with well structured minerality. Youthful, friendly and inviting, this wine is ready to be enjoyed now. Sirkel encapsulates our dream of fulfilling our mission to be custodians of earth and guardians of man, caring for what has been entrusted to us. This wine completes the full seasonal circle by giving back to the land and the people committed to its creation. Grapes are hand harvested before being de-stemmed, crushed and pressed. Spontaneous fermentation turns the juice into wine, with minimal interference. Partly fermented and aged in inox and partly in old French oak barrels, followed by bottling on premise. Every process is done with as little intervention as possible and as naturally as possible in the Scali winery. Our aim is to have as little impact on the environment as possible and therefor we use light weight glass bottles, natural wax as capsules and recycled paper labels, and each SIRKEL design is individually hand stamped on the label by seasonal workers in the off season, when they would normally not have an income. This labour intensive waxing, stamping and labelling forms part of our community project to benefit people in our vicinity with a means to sustain their families, and we’re very proud of what they are achieving!"

Absolutely dynamite Chenin. You won't believe how good this is for the money. Wow...this region is synonymous with world class Chenin Blanc but most are at twice this price point. This is serious wine with a very small price tag thanks to our importer direct deal. Yellow stone fruit, baked pears, digestive biscuit, a nice cut of piercing, mineral infused acidity. Wow...did I say that already...and the bonus "feel good factor"...this wine is grown organically, sealed with natural wax, the labels are recycled paper, hand-printed by the vineyard employees during the non-growing season so they can maintain employment all year around! :)
Top Value!

I don't know how to start this so.... think South African Savennières, that is super enjoyable when young. It has lots of mineral, apple, pear and a floral note. The fruit is fleshier and fresher than any young Savennières. This a crazy good Chenin Blanc.
