Releaf Chenin Blanc Western Cape
When it comes to grapes in the Western Cape, there is a wide variety. But one grape seems to lead here: Chenin Blanc referred to locally as ‘Steen.’ It is the most widely planted grape in the country. South Africa has almost ½ of the vineyards of Chenin Blanc worldwide within its borders.
You will find notes of pear, lemon, chamomile, honeydew melon, wet stones, preserved lemon. Those sweeter styles might have peach notes, or baked apple.
