White Wine /// Chenin Blanc // Swartland / South Africa
Independent. Uncompromising. Cool. Natural. Challenging. Brave. Delicious. Craig Hawkins is the King of natural wines in South Africa. Without sacrificing any cleanliness or experiencing any barnyard odour that many of his natural wine making peers experience, his are just delicious, but also fascinating. The labels are works of art. This one is named after a Neil Young song of the Zuma album.
Be warned though - this is fucking Natch! Wacky! STSWine
From a 1972 Chenin Blanc vineyard. Lime, green apple and dried herbs. Light but extraordinarily pure and fresh. Layers of flavour and lovely length – ethereal. 93 POINTS WINEMAG
