2011 Bellingham The Bernard Series Old Vine Chenin blanc, Western Cape

( £9.59, 14.5%, Majestic )

You can really taste the old vine concentration is this ripe, textured, tropical fruity Cape Chenin. The flavours coat the palate: honey, pineapple and cinnamon spice, some vanilla sweetness from oak ageing and crisp, appley acidity. Weighty, concentrated and full of flavour, this has impressive length and freshness too.
