Rijk's 2013 Cape Winemakers Guild CWG Chenin Blanc (Tulbagh)

Winemaker: Pierre Wahl. A rich and lush Chenin, this will benefit from some time in the cellar for the oaky tones to further harmonize and integrate. Currently, notes of honeydew, beeswax, spiced apple skin, Asian pear and toast dominate the nose and palate, with enough acidic lift to keep the mouthfeel from feeling too rich or heavy. The ripe fruit shines on the midpalate, but toasted sweet-spice notes soon dominate and hang on long through the finish. Drink 2016–2018. Lauren Buzzeo
