Introduction

South Africa's Stellenbosch region excels at producing world-class Chenin Blanc, and Jordan Estate's 'Inspector Peringuey' bottling is a shining example. Named after Louis Albert Péringuey, the 19th-century inspector general of Cape vineyards, this wine showcases Chenin Blanc's versatility and charm. Let's delve into its tasting notes and explore perfect food pairings for a delightful wine experience.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Pale lemon in the glass with a youthful glint.
  • Nose: A burst of vibrant aromas greets you – white pear, quince, ripe pineapple, and a touch of lemon zest. Subtle hints of honey and white flowers add complexity.
  • Palate: This Chenin Blanc strikes a beautiful balance between freshness and richness. The ripe fruit flavours from the nose are complemented by juicy citrus and a zesty acidity that lingers on the finish. Subtle oak influence adds layers of vanilla and spice. The texture is creamy yet refreshing.
