Stellenrust Stellenbosch Manor Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc 2020 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips


An unusual South African Chenin Blanc that’s been fermented in oak barrels to give it that oomphy oaky kick on the flavour. So you’ll need an equally robust food choice to match its honey and glue-type flavours. There’s some juicy freshness of apple and pear with lemon. A bit pricey at £9.
