Professional Wine Reviews for David Aristargos 2014

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Aristargos is a blend of 35% Chenin Blanc, 25% Roussanne, 20% Clairette Blanche, 15% Viognier and 5% Sémillon. It has a much more nuanced and engaging bouquet than the straight 2014 Chenin Blanc with dried white flowers, honeysuckle and jasmine aromas, though I would have liked a little more intensity. The palate is well balanced with a refined opening of orange peel and fresh pear, quite pithy on the back palate with peach skin and resinous notes on the complex finish. Drink this over the next 4-6 years. This wine is very fine, though the 2013 has the edge.

Additional Information on David Aristargos 2014

Winery: David

Region: Coastal Region

Coastal South Africa has long been recognized as a vitally important global wine region, and was probably the first 'New World' country to produce wines of an exceptionally high quality. Indeed, in the late 18th century, wines from in and around Cape Town were regarded as amongst the best wines on earth, and were adored for their exoticism and big, fruity flavors Today, the South African wine industry is booming, and wineries are appearing each year along the sun drenched and windy oceanic coastline. Many grape varietals are now grown in the region, however, Chenin Blanc remains the country's flagship varietal, with over eighteen percent of vineyards in the country used for this particular grape, closely followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and Colombard.

Country: South Africa

Situated on the very tip of the African continent, South Africa has proved itself over three centuries to be an ideal location for producing a wide range of wines. Benefiting from something not dissimilar to a Mediterranean climate, with long, hot summers complemented by both Atlantic and Indian Ocean winds, the grapes which grow on the valleys, mountainsides and plains of this fascinating country can ripen to their fullest capacity, producing wines packed full of fruity flavors and an array of interesting and enticing aromas. As a former colony, South Africa has long since been home to a range of different nationalities, who each brought something of their wine culture with them. As such, many European grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and others have been given time to flourish in South Africa, allowing the country to develop a diverse group of wine types which are proving increasingly popular around the world.
