Backsberg Chenin Blanc 2019
Backsberg’s philosophy remains that of providing pleasure and enjoyment to a broad range of wine lovers by producing wines not only with structure and finesse, but also with a high level of “drinkability”. To put it simply, if you find their wines easy to drink then they are achieving what they want.
Ripe flavors of peach, melon and pineapple are tempered by finely balanced acidity to give a mouth-filling, yet refreshing palate. Wonderful on its own or with salads, summer vegetables, fish, chicken, spicy dishes. Best enjoyed within 4 years.
Grapes are picked over time between 21 and 23 degree Balling. They are then crushed, chilled and settled overnight. Fermented warmer at 16°degrees Celsius in stainless steel to yield a simple, clean but slightly fuller wine.
Chenin Blanc is exceptionally versatile. It pairs well with salads, vegetables, fish and chicken. Hints of sweetness and a slightly fuller body ensure it complements both spicy and creamier dishes.
