Bellingham The Founders Series Freda 2017 (Chenin Blanc/Grenache Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc) (Vegan Friendly)
Stellenbosch, South Africa
A blend of 40% Chenin Blanc, 30% Grenache Blanc and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. Delicate floral aromas on entry, with hints of pear, yellow peach and green almonds, which follow through onto the palate. The Sauvignon Blanc component adds a fresh element, providing balance to the considered use of French oak. On the finish, the wine delights with its pithy character and a slight saline edge for a lingering, fresh sensation. With its aromatic bouquet, ripe tropical fruit and oak complexity, this luxurious wine is an excellent match for a wide variety of gourmet cuisine. Complementary dishes include salmon gravadlax, crayfish tandoori and confit duck.
