Graham Beck Chenin Blanc The Game Reserve 2013

Graham Beck Chenin Blanc The Game Reserve 750ml 2013     
Sku: 1868730*

The label for this wine features the endangered and highly elusive South African Riverine Rabbit which inhabits the wildlife reserve situated on Graham and Rhona Beck’s Robertson estate, Madeba. The wine celebrates Graham Beck Wines’ commitment to conserving the natural environment. This 100% Chenin Blanc is from low yielding, 40 - 46 year old bush vines on rolling hills in Paarl, exposed to south eastern winds, rain and lots of sunshine. The grapes were left to ripen fully to ensure the development of the rich and ripe flavours and complexity. The grapes were destalked, then mash cooled with 8-12 hours skin contact and cool fermentation. A small percentage (5-10%) of the Chenin Blanc was fermented in French Oak barrels to generate an added dimension of richness. The complex nose shows upfront tropical fruit, ripe pineapple, melon, peaches and honey flavours, lifted by a citrus element. Good company for al fresco lunches. Also great with grilled chicken or fish, rich pasta dishes and spicy food.

 Wine Advocate 87 points (Oct 2014)
The 2013 The Game Reserve Chenin Blanc has rather conservative wet wool, honeysuckle-scented bouquet. The palate is well-balanced with hints of hazelnut and almond on the entry, decent depth and a smooth, toffee-tinged finish. Drink now.
