When Stellenrust decided to craft their own Chenin Blanc 16 years ago, they envisioned a wine with pronounced quality that would become a beacon for South African wines. Fast forward to today, not only have they upheld the standards they set for themselves years ago, they achieved yet another top rating with Decanter Wines of the Year 2021! During the blind panel tasting in October 2021, Stellenrust Chenin Blanc was rated 96 points in the Classic category, amongst some of the top brands in the wine world! This is a true testament to the dedication and hard work from the team, as well as to the quality of wine itself.
The Stellenrust Chenin Blanc has an “inviting nose with touches of lime skin, oyster shell, green fruit, wax, candied rose petals and hints of curry” (Decanter Wines of the Year 2021: the top Classic wines)…a classic with intense vibrancy and freshness.
Word to the wise – although the estate has now moved onto their 2021 vintage, Wine Please! still has small parcel of 2020 vintage remaining. It’s one of the greatest value for money Decanter-awarded wine out there. So, we HIGHLY recommend getting your hands on those bottles before they really, really run out!
Is Stellenrust the Chenin Blanc King? We say, hear hear!
