Anthonij Rupert Protea Chenin Blanc 2020

Platters Review: 3.5 * (Laudable complexity for the price)

Appealing nose of nectarine, white peach and pear drop. In the mouth it is fresh and succulent with bright stonefruit – again peach and nectarine are obvious. Lively green melon and pear flavour too, with broad but gentle lees notes on the midpalate. Well balanced and tasty with a long, rewarding tail.

The grapes were handpicked during the early morning hours at optimal ripeness and transported to the cellar in refrigerated trucks. The fruit was both de-stemmed and whole bunch pressed before the juice settled overnight. All parcels were kept separate and racked into fermentation with selected yeast strain cultures. The wine spent 2 months on the lees in stainless steel tanks, before being blended and bottled.

"Anthonij Rupert Wyne proudly introduces the Protea Range. Everything about this range seeks to marry the old with the new. The heritage of the vines, innovatively tied into distinctive packaging designs, is made to be re-used and recycled, thus prolonging the lifecycle of the product. While we are celebrating Cape wine culture, we have stripped it down to some of the defining elements of the landscape, irrevocably tying the brand to the land. We invite you to be the judge!"
