M’hudi Family Boutique Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc 2021
A broad barrel-fermented Chenin Blanc with green and orchard fruits and a hint of wood spice. Rich yet with a whistle-clean finish.
M’hudi’s take on this classic French grape is intentionally rich, vast. The grapes are dry farmed which, importantly, preserves the aromatics in the Stellenbosch sun. The wine is fermented and then matured – for 10 months – in 500 litre French oak barrels to produce a broadly textured white. There are flavours of stewed apple, lemon pith, quince, pineapple and dried apricot, while the natural high acidity of the grape aptly compliments the rich, medium body to leave a long refreshing finish.
