Reverie Chenin Blanc - Jacques de Klerk
|GRAPE CHENIN BLANC ||ALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 11%|
|VINTAGE: 2017 ||REGION: SWARTLAND, SOUTH AFRICA|
One of the richest, most deliciously layered and indulgent white wines we've tasted for some time, Reverie is a special example of how to treat South African Chenin Blanc. It starts with zesty citrus flavours followed by cooked apple, pear and smoky butterscotch all the way through to the long finish.
Winemaker Jacques de Klerk, clearly proud of what he has achieved with this wine, describes the small production run as the culmination of everything he has learned about winemaking. It's impressive stuff which fully justifies the price tag.
An occasion wine, this is best paired with rich white meat roasts (with all the trimmings), rich flavoursome cheese, and in the absence of a sweet wine, cream based desserts such as crème brûlé.
