Perdeberg releases the 2012 vintage of ever popular Chenin Blanc
29 May 2012 by Perdeberg Winery
Perdeberg Winery, home to Paarl, launched their 2012 vintage of Chenin Blanc at the Good Food and Wine Show, Cape Town.
Fergill Fortuin, Brand Manager at Perdeberg says, “Consumers and Trade are always looking for the most crisp and freshest white and this show offers the perfect platform for utter indulgence in our 2012 Chenin. This very aromatic Chenin Blanc will fill their glasses with exciting and voluptuous flavors right to the brim.”
The grapes were harvested in the early morning hours at optimum ripeness; free run juice was drained promptly and quickly and chilled to 12°C. The juice was left overnight to settle and racked off the lees the following morning. The juice was inoculated with wine yeast and fermented under controlled conditions over a period of 10 days at 12 to 14°C. After alcoholic fermentation was 100% completed the wine was left on the lees for some time to gain extra flavor and texture. Carla Herbst, winemaker and fifth harvest at Perdeberg says, “The 2012 Chenin shows great character and is truly a stunning wine!”
A fusion of fruitiness and finesse, the wine enters the palate with freshness and a well balanced acidity that support the everlasting flavors of citrus, lime and kiwifruit leaving a long and tantalizing aftertaste to linger for quit some time. This refreshing and food- friendly white is recommended to be enjoyed with cold canapés, salads or with any meal your heart desires.
The 2012 Chenin Blanc will be included in the Perdeberg collection as a continuation of the ever so popular wine. It is expected to retail around R32.99 and will be available at selected="true"="true" Checkers, SPAR, PnP and wholesale outlets.
