The Sadie Family Mev. Kirsten Chenin Blanc 2017
THE ELDEST CHENIN VINEYARD IN SOUTH AFRICA. NEVER SEEN ANY PESTICIDES AND HERBICIDES. VERY LOW YIELDING. UNIQUE.
Old Vine Series Mev Kirsten, which comes from the heaviest soils, has an attractive bouquet with yellow flower and hazelnut aromas, just a hint of gingerbread that emerges with time. Perhaps this is the most mercurial aromatics of Eben's 2017. The palate beautifully balanced once again, a crisp line of acidity, just a slight viscosity here with hints of clear honey and quince jelly on the long and tender finish. Very fine, but I think it has more to give.
