Painted Wolf

Painted Wolf The Den Chenin Blanc 2009

87 pts Wine Enthusiast (LB) 6/1/2011 - The rich, medium-weight mouth carries similar notes of spicy toast and ripe pear flavors.

Tasting Notes

A rich full bodied lightly wooded wine with tropical flavours of creamy pineapple, melon and vanilla. The wine has a lovely texture with a long finish with just enough acid to keep it really fresh and vibrant.

Food Accompaniments

The Den Chenin Blanc is delicious on its own. The wine has tons of flavours and is dry so it’s a versatile partner for many different dishes.

- This Chenin immediately draws you in with notes of baked apple, beeswax and softly toasted brioche. The rich, medium-weight mouth carries similar notes of spicy toast and ripe pear flavors. Full-flavored and easy to drink; enjoy now.

Winemaker Notes

The Chenin Blanc is harvested off a number of blocks on Leeuwenkuil. The grapes are from blocks which are irrigated, dry farmed blocks and from vines of 20 to 40 years old. Sauvignon Blanc is from a 35 year old unirrigated block on Southern Cross, Paarl. This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavour and texture. The wine was fermented at 15 Celsius until about 10 balling and then cooled down to 10 degrees where it continued to slowly ferment for a further 3-4 months building glycerol in the wine.
