TUSSOCK JUMPER Chenin Blanc produces flavors of apple, melon, lime and pear with hints of vanilla and honey. Attractive nuances of fynbos—the Afrikaans term for the natural shrubs and vegetation that stretch across the Western Cape— adds a distinctly South African character to the bouquet as do delicate mineral hints of slate, chalk and flint.
This bush-vine chenin balances a pretty, white fruit expression of honeyed pear with a mouthwatering salinity that evokes the False Bay breezes that keep the area cool. Its flavors are pulled taut by pithy lemon and ruby-grapefruit acidity, an effect that Johan Joubert achieved through blending fresh Wellington fruit into the richer Helderberg harvest. It's juicy with a firm, stony structure.
|Ideal to accompany all types of white meat, pastas and salads.
