ALEXANDERFONTEIN CHENIN BLANC

Prepare dainty salad-kebabs with a few simple ingredients to serve as a snack. Use ingredients like cucumber, peaches or nectarines and mini mozzarella balls or a mild white cheddar. The same ingredients could also be used to toss together a refreshing salad as part of a meal with roasted fish or chicken and a glass of Alexanderfontein Chenin Blanc. This wine is enjoyable with almost any meal and ideal for summer – so definitely remember to pack it for a picnic or serve it around the pool. Alternatively prepare a refreshing pasta salad with chicken, nectarines, cucumber, cheese and olive oil.

Recipe: Salad-kebabs: Skewer cubes of white Cheddar onto kebab sticks or tear mini mozzarella balls (bocconcini) in half and alternate with nectarine wedges. Half a large cucumber and using a potato-peeler cut long thin ribbons. Zig-zag thread cucumber with a small rocket leave onto sticks and finish kebabs with a drizzle of quality olive oil and a grind of black pepper before serving it as a late summer’s afternoon snack with a glass of ice cold Alexanderfontein Chenin Blanc.

Chenin Blanc is synonymous with the South African wine industry. Although the cultivar does not have the image of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc a lot of old plantings do exist. Luckily for us we planted them on ideal terroir; cool climate with high altitude and in close proximity to the sea.

DESCRIPTION:  This is an unwooded Chenin Blanc that was planted in ideal terroir, cool climate, high altitude and close proximity to the sea.
