Napier Lion Creek Chenin Blanc Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Napier is a new shooting star from South Africa. The Lion Creek wines are ideal for everyday drinking and offer great value for money.
Napier is a new shooting star on South Africa’s dynamic wine scene. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Hawequas Mountains, this boutique, family-owned winery has 88 hectares in Wellington, just 70 km to the north-east of Cape Town, and offers a counterpoint to the more well-known areas of Stellenbosch and Paarl. Mountain water and snow melt supplies Napier’s own bore for precision-planned drip irrigation to manage development of each individual varietal, vineyard block and quality level. All work in the vineyards is concentrated on achieving varietal typicité and perfect balance, from the Lion Creek wines for everyday drinking through to Napier’s multiple award-winning icon wine, Red Medallion.
"Chenin Blanc is South Africa’s signature grape and is joined by another of the world’s favourite grape varieties, Sauvignon Blanc, in this deliciously up-front and fruity white. Ripe tropical fruit aromas are enhanced with a touch of pineapple and citrus giving a pleasingly elegant yet soft and ripe style for immediate drinking pleasure, with or without food."
