Stellenbosch is known for its fine expressions of Chenin blanc with a distinctive South African accent – ripe and round. Stellenrust has grown into one of the largest family owned wine estates in South Africa since it was first started in 1928.
Rounded and fresh, this Chenin has been fermented with native yeasts to give it some extra complexity. There is a savoury spiced finish to the fresh apple, nectarine and pineapple fruit notes. While it is crisp, it has soft lush curves. It is a tasty wine for the price and very easy to enjoy a glass before dinner after a long day whatever the weather or to drink with spiced chicken or fish.
