Front Row Chenin Blanc/Roussanne 2019 'Smooth, uncomplicated white. Yes please!'
Front Row Chenin Blanc/Roussanne 2019. Here's the marvellous white sister to the red Front Row Shiraz blend. The wine is from some of the highest vineyards in the region - up to 700 metres - and the slopes of the Paardeberg Mountain have proven ideal for some classic grapes of the French Rhone district. This Chenin Blanc (90%), Roussanne (10%) juice blend is fermented at low temperature in steel tanks and finished on concrete before blending and bottling. Not the most romantic of processes but here's the result: a wonderfully textured wine, crisp and generously tropical, it has floral notes and is neat and dry. Like a strong rugby player, it knows what its job is and delivers surely and with gentlemanly aplomb. Uncomplicated, very likeable and obvious in the best way possible. Alc 13.5%. Screwcap (obviously)
