Metzer 'Montane'

Chenin Blanc, 2017

South Africa White

Stellenbosch 75cl

A new winery to me and this wine is very highly rated by Tim Atkin MW and i can see why.
From bush vines planted in 1964, grown on granite and quartz. Hand harvested, wild yeast fermented, no enzyme, yeast or acid additions.
Quite tight aromatically with ripe pear and steely citrus with a slate character.
Minerally on the palate, the wine has wonderful verve and energy. Ripe peach. citrus and stone fruit with a limey finish, some creamy nutty characters too. Long, stony and quite delicious. Lots going on and sure to age well too.
A lovely less tropical, minerally, almost racy style of Chenin, yet has lots of extract and depth.
