Napier Little Lara Single Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2018
A rich and full-flavoured single vineyard Chenin Blanc from rising star Napier
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. Napier Single Vineyard wines are varietals originating from our best single vineyard sites, carefully selected with passion and care by winemaker Leon Bester
A rich and full-flavoured single vineyard Chenin Blanc, this has a deep straw colour and aromas of baked apples and pear. The palate is rich and rounded, with ripe orchard fruits and gala melon, with a fresh long finish. Enjoy now and over the next 5-8 years.
