Tonight, yet another delicious offering from South African Adi Badenhorst. The man can make wine!
This is a 2015 white blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier, and each brings something nice to the table. The nose is floral (orange blossom, perhaps) the palate starts with ripe fruit (pineapple, peach, citrus) followed by a bit of crème fraiche mixed with mild honey, and finishes with the zestiest freshest orange. Good structure, and medium length on the finish making this absolutely quaffable. And at £9.75 – very good value for money.
On the back label this is Adi’s recommendation: “Drink with attractive friends, or cellar, until you have attractive or interesting friends” …
The husband reckons we’re safe to drink it now, then. The friends are attractive, even if we’re not.
Hoping the fish pie is as good as the wine! The photo, however, is dismal.
Happy Tuesday, all!
