Cape Heights, Chenin Blanc, Western Cape, 2019

Textbook Chenin nose: white flowers and pears. Bright citrus and green fruit. Decent concentration for a wine at this level. Now-2021

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
