Dionysus presents a stunning value white wine in this Saturday’s Vintages release…
From South Africa’s Franschhoek Valley comes the 2019 Bellingham ‘The Old Orchard’ Chenin Blanc ($16.95 | LCBO# 484055). Look for limited quantitites in the Ocotober 31st LCBO Vintages release.
Grapes were handpicked in middle of February from 25-year-old dryland bush vines. Whole bunch pressed and cold settled and naturally fermented in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels.
A pale gold wine with a platinum glow. Nuances of ripe stone fruit and buttered toast aromas on the nose. Charming layers of honey, marmalade and peaches on the palate with citrus-lime freshness.
Perfect with crisp crumbed fishcakes, richer fish dishes such as salmon en croute or even roast pork belly with a glazed applesauce.
