Alheit 2017 Radio Lazarus Chenin Blanc (Stellenbosch)

Editors' Choice

This is very likely the last release of this single-vineyard wine, after winemakers Chris and Suzaan Alheit found the extreme Bottelary site unrecoverable after three years of drought pushed it over the edge. Shame, but it's a beautiful swan song, boasting pure, direct notes of calendula, beeswax, fynbos and Anjou pear from the start. The palate shows good cut, with moderate acidity and a softly pithy texture reminiscent of bitter melon, orange peel and pear. The finish lingers on a saline accent. Lauren Buzzeo
