2018 Babylon's Peak Chenin Blanc - 90 PTS - IWR

i winereview logo"This unwooded Chenin is made from a single vineyard of 38+ year old dry farmed bush vines planted on granitic soils. It offers a complex bouquet of minerals and tropical fruit with an herbal edge. The palate is crisp and mineral like with appealing guava fruit notes. Stephan aims for a fresh style, and he succeeds. One doesn’t typically age an inexpensive wine like this, but giving Chenin additional time in bottle often enhances complexity and richness. Stephan showed us a 2007 vintage of this wine, and it had evolved into a delicious, rich wine of honeyed peach and dried apricot. - Don Winkler"
