2012 Teddy Hall Wines Cape Winemakers Guild Hendrik Biebouw Chenin Blanc Reserve
Region: Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, Western Cape, South Africa
Cannot believe this was under $7.00. Stunning value for a Cape Winemakers Guild bottling. Light plus to medium gold in appearance. Big nose with beeswax, honey, citrus rind and a little wax. Medium acidity (6/10) and medium to medium plus body. Warm palate with lots of citrus, spices, stone fruits and light minerality. Long finish.
