Spice Route Chenin Blanc 2017/2018/2019 Swartland
Charles Back is the owner of Spice Route, and changed the course of South African wine by a) making wine from Swartland fruit and b) appointing Eben Sadie as his first winemaker. The rest is history. This is a full-bodied chenin with honeycomb, ginger syrup and toffee apple. On the finish, a smoky oatmeal richness from being barrel fermented. Divine.
