Donkiesbaai on the West Coast of South Africa has been the vacation home to the Engelbrecht family for four generations. Crayfish, Harders and a cold glass of Steen (Chenin Blanc) is part of the history that is Donkiesbaai and with this wine I raise a glass with family and friends. A portion of the wine was fermented in old French oak barrels for five months prior to bottling. Tropical aromas of pineapple are well supported by fresh citrus notes. There is a subtle butterscotch aroma that adds to the complexity of the nose. The fresh citrus and lush tropical fruit flavours follow through beautifully onto the palate. There is a rich, round mouthfeel with a fine minerality that leads up to a full, balanced finish.
