Miles Mossop Chapter 2 Swartland Chenin Blanc 2020
After nearly two decades at Tokara’s helm, Miles Mossop had the time to fine-tune his own brand. Miles Mossop Wines was established in 2004 with the vision to create wines unique in character, expressing the true nature of South Africa and the sites from which the grapes are sourced. The Miles Mossop Chapter 2 Swartland Chenin Blanc 2020 is a 100% Chenin Blanc from a single 49-year-old bush vine vineyard in the Paardeberg, Swartland. This white wine has a beautiful pale straw colour. The nose of the wine is bursting with complex aromas of yellow and white peach, citrus blossom, dry straw and toasted almonds. The palate is full of the flavours evident on the nose with a hint of tart quince and pithy notes on the midpalate. There are flavours of toasted almonds and creamy notes evident due to time on the lees in barrel. The wine still finishes with clarity and freshness.
This wine is a perfect accompaniment to grilled fish, and chicken dishes.
