W.O. Swartland, South Africa
Described as "the staff empowerment project," Great Heart Vineyard in the heart of the Swartland is not only owned by the employees, but dedicates its profits to improving the livelihood of their families. That close knit love shows itself in this wonderful 100% Chenin Blanc. Sustainably farmed, it has aromatic notes of lime and lemon zest, white peach, and flint. The palate has a full mouthfeel and an acidic and pithy finish. This wine plays wonderfully with tuna tartare, smoked salmon, and spring vegetables like asparagus and peas.
