South Africa's Stellenbosch region is renowned for its exceptional Chenin Blanc, and Simonsig Chenin Blanc Avec Chêne exemplifies the best of this versatile grape. This unique wine marries vibrant Chenin fruit with the subtle touch of oak, resulting in a complex and food-friendly delight. Let's delve into its aromas, flavours, and ideal food pairings.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Simonsig Chenin Blanc Avec Chêne displays a beautiful pale golden hue, hinting at its richness and subtle oak influence.

  • Palate: The palate delivers a wonderful balance of vibrant fruit and oak complexity. Flavours of white peach, nectarine, and subtle citrus are complemented by layers of spice, vanilla, and a hint of toasted hazelnut. The wine finishes with a lingering, refreshing acidity that keeps you coming back for more.

Food Pairing Suggestions

  • Poultry: This Chenin can stand up to roasted chicken with creamy sauces or a flavorful chicken curry.
  • Light Pasta Dishes: Pair it with a pasta primavera or a seafood linguine for a delicious match.
  • Spicy Cuisine: The wine's subtle sweetness and spice notes handle medium-heat dishes like Thai green curry with ease.
