Mount Abora Koggelbos Swartland South Africa Chenin Blanc 2014

This is a very savoury chenin blanc from Mount Abora in South Africa.  It opens to tertiary aromas of toast, earth and lemons.  The palate has racy acidity and is quite a complex rendition of chenin blanc, and South African chenin blanc, in particular.  This is a deliciously complex wine that will suit current drinking.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $33. Website:
