Boer and Brit Suikerbossie Chenin Blanc 2011
Boer and Brit is the combination of winemakers Stefan Gerber, a great, great grandson of President Paul Kruger and Alexander Milner a great, great grandson of Field Marshall John French. These two have, more than a hundred years after the bitter rivalry of their forefathers, created Boer and Brit, a range of dynamic and exciting wines that have gone down a storm both in South Africa and abroad.
100% steel tank fermentation preceded by a cold maceration ensures clean fresh varietal characteristics have been preserved.
Tasting Note: Peach, honey, guava & fresh apples on the nose. A modern, fresh style of Chenin. The palate is notably rich, especially for a Chenin at this level, showing honeyed apples with notes of minerality and a dry crisp finish.
