Seekat Bay Chenin Blanc 2021

All the way from Seekat Bay comes this refreshing white—showcasing Chenin Blanc, the star white grape variety of South Africa’s world-class Western Cape.

Seekat Bay’s coastal vineyards sit right next to the Atlantic, so the nights are cool and the days are moderate. The grapes ripen slowly in these temperatures, and winemaker Mauritius Coetzee-Naude uses the climate to his advantage—the team harvests the grapes during nightfall, using the coolness to preserve the Chenin Blanc’s quality and aroma.

Since the vineyards are located on the coast, Coetzee-Naude was inspired to craft a white wine that pairs perfectly with any seafood, especially the fresh catch of the day. But don’t worry—you can continue sipping on this Chenin Blanc long after dinner has ended. This expressive white brims with vibrant tropical-fruit flavors, citrus and notes of sweet honeysuckle.
