Intrepid Chenin Blanc 2020
A pale straw colour with a bright golden tinge. White pear and quince aromas with a touch of dried apricot on the nose, as well as a lightly wooded elegance with undertones of nuts and a creamy lees character. The palate is full and grippy with rich honeycomb and hay with great texture, which culminate in a crisp acidity and long finish. Terroir driven wines to be enjoyed with a beautiful rebel on your side.

The Intrepid sheep ventures into the wolf pack, ready to show it’s up for the battle. Trellis vines stand together like a flock of sheep in this beautiful valley, receiving just the right amount of water when needed for the ripening process to continue. The slower maturing grapes allow for great complexity and texture to the wine. A hidden gem that is waiting to expose its real identity to the world. The grapes are grown in the southern part of the Breedekloof valley. Planted in 1985, limited production and water ensures great concentrated aromas develop.
Being a rich and elegant wine, it will pair beautifully with sushi, fish, chicken, or salads which is fruit based. Intrepid Chenin Blanc’s awesome acidity and inherently sweet flavour, you will find it pairs well with foods that have a sweet and sour element. Southeast Asian cuisine or pork chops with apples paired with this richer and full style Chenin Blanc will blow your mind.
