90pointsFable Mountain 2012 Jackal Bird White (Western Cape)

Lush and toasty, this blend of 45% Chenin Blanc, 20% Grenache Blanc, 17% Roussanne, 9% Chardonnay and 9% Viognier is complex yet balanced. Scents of toasted apple, pear, beeswax, almond and brioche frame the nose, while the palate offers additional notes of clove-spiked orange and lemon custard. Ample acidity lifts the smooth mouthfeel and sweet-spiced finish. Drink now–2018. Lauren Buzzeo
