Composed of 83% Chenin Blanc, 10% Chardonnay and 7% Viognier, the 2019 The Curator White Blend offers waxy citrus tones in the glass with elements of underripe pineapple and dusty citrus blossom. Medium-bodied, the 12.5% alcohol wine has a bright citrus profile that features flavors of white peach skin with succulent acidity, ending with an uncomplicated, food-friendly finish.

The 2019 The Curator White Blend consists of 83% Chenin Blanc, 10% Chardonnay and 7% Viognier. It has an attractive nose featuring tropical notes of passion fruit and guava, maybe a little smudged but generous. The palate is simple but balanced, displaying a touch of spice on the entry, a nice twist of sour lemon counterbalancing the richness of this Chenin Blanc, and then a welcome saltiness on the finish. Fine.

Region: Coastal Region

The coastal region of South Africa is a wonderful place for viticulture. With gorgeously long, hot summer days, tempered by brisk oceanic winds, the grapevines can grow healthily, the fruit can ripen fully, and beautiful wines of great character and flavor can be made. For several hundred years now, the coastal region of South Africa has proven itself to be a highly important wine region, capable of supporting many grape varietals, suitable for still, fortified and sparkling wines. Today, the most popular grapes by far are Chenin Blanc, which produces the most recognizable wines of South Africa. However, also popular are many of the Bordeaux varieties of red and white grape, along with relative newcomers, such as Pinotage, which grow exceptionally well in the coastal terroir.

Country: South Africa

With its hot, long summers and oceanic winds from both the west and the east, South Africa is something of a haven for a wide range of imported grape varietals. Since the mid-18th century, the country has been associated with some very fine wines made using complex and careful blending techniques, with one of the most famous and widely loved early examples being constructed from Pontac, Muscadel and Chenin Blanc varietals. Since those colonial days, the regions around Cape Town have proven again and again to be fantastic areas for producing interesting and delicious wines, with many of the best examples of Champagne style sparkling wines originating from these fertile lands. From the scorchingly hot regions of Orange Rivers, to the far cooler and temperate appellations in Walker Bay, South Africa has developed a booming wine industry responsible for many of the finest New World wines available anywhere across the globe.
