20/07/2014 – Fairview, Darling Chenin Blanc 2013

Fairview, Darling Chenin Blanc 2013, South Africa
Not the richly-oaked and honeyed style of some of the top Chenins, but a much more lime-streaked, intense and vibrantly fresh interpretation. Yes, there is some nutty, mealy character, but really it is the core of lime, cut of acid and yet tiny floral notes of complexity that makes this appealing. £9.50, Slurp.co.uk.
