Franschhoek Cellar La Cotte Chenin Blanc: A Taste of South Africa's Sunshine

Introduction

South Africa's Western Cape is a haven for wine lovers, especially those with a fondness for Chenin Blanc. Franschhoek Cellar La Cotte Chenin Blanc offers a delightful expression of this versatile grape variety, showcasing the vibrant fruit character and refreshing acidity typical of the region.  Let's dive into its tasting notes and explore ideal food pairings to complement its charm.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: La Cotte Chenin Blanc displays a pale lemon colour in the glass with subtle hints of green, hinting at its youthfulness and freshness.
  • Nose: A burst of tropical fruit aromas greets you, with ripe pineapple, guava, and a touch of citrus leading the way. Delicate floral notes of honeysuckle and a hint of minerality add complexity.
  • Palate: The palate delivers a refreshing balance of fruit and acidity. Flavours of peach, nectarine, and a hint of melon unfold, followed by a zesty citrus lift. A slight honeyed note lingers on the finish, adding a touch of sweetness.

Food Pairing Suggestions

La Cotte Chenin Blanc's bright flavours and medium body make it a fantastic food companion. Here are some ideas to inspire you:

  • Seafood: Perfect with grilled fish, such as lemon-herb halibut, or simply prepared mussels in white wine sauce.
  • Asian Cuisine: Complements the spice and sweetness of dishes like Thai green curry or Pad See Ew.
  • Salads & Light Dishes: Pairs beautifully with a summery salad featuring grilled chicken, goat cheese, and stone fruits.
  • Cheese: Enjoy it with a creamy Brie, a crumbly goat cheese, or a nutty aged cheddar.
