Jordan Estate Inspector Péringuey Chenin Blanc 2015

It’s rich, voluptuous and lush, but has a natural acidity that stops it being cloying

A delicious mouth-filling texture on the palate with notes of white pear, quince and ripe tropical notes; time spent in oak adds an added richness and a hint of spice. The juice was barrel-fermented in 228L second and third-fill Burgundian shaped barrels, and matured “sur-lie” in the barrel for 8 months. To accentuate the fresh citrus flavour, 50 % tank-fermented Chenin Blanc was blended with the barrel fermented portion. Enjoy with roast pork belly with apple sauce. Enjoy now until 2020.

  – “SAY CHEERS TO CHENIN BLANC”

“If you’re looking for a richer, more autumnal white than you’ve been drinking recently, you’ll find it in chenin blanc. Not so much among the sub-£6 supermarket bottles, which tend to be crisp, fruity and unoaked, or even the vouvrays and saumurs of the Loire, which can be unpredictably off-dry and maddeningly inconsistent, but in its other natural habitat, South Africa, particularly the Swartland region…
