Elegantly styled and delightfully fruit-driven, the Pecan Stream Chenin Blanc from Waterford Wine Estate shows a beautifully balanced character. A delicately perfumed bouquet releases aromatic notes of tropical melon, apricot, white pear and peach that are coated in subtle floral and citrus shades. The aromatic profile of the nose translates with finesse and freshness on a finely textured palate that is pleasantly weighted and round, a quality imparted by the slight addition of Viognier and Chardonnay. The vibrant fruit profile of the palate is kept focused by taut acidity, adding to the wine’s exceptionally balanced character.
The South African winery Waterford is situated in beautiful Stellenbosch, the region at the cape that is best known for its excellent wines. The estate sees continuity and tradition as the best way to ensure highest quality, an idea that can also be felt in the French terracotta design of the winery. Waterford Estate was created through a very special partnership between two families who had a shared dream to create a wine farm where life is cherished, the seasons mark time and the fruit always reminds of blessings, abundance and the beauty of nature.
