Rijk's Touch of Oak Coastal Region Chenin Blanc 2014

Rijk's is one of South Africa's best Chenin Blanc producer, having consistent produced four excellent versions, namely their value for money Touch of Oak, Private Cellar, Reserve and the occasional  and world class Cape Wine Makers Guild, all four have their merits to be for their price points amongst the finest expression of Chenin Blanc in the world.

Touch of Oak 2014 is the finest to date, it shows the fine tuning and spinal precision started with the 2010 vintage, with salivating bright freshness, almost salty tang, delicately ripe apples, citrus and burst of green lime, racy, with lots of energy.

Lively texture with delicate concentration of fruit, subtle touch of spicy oak, chiselled freshness, moreish.

It is available by the glass at The Palazzo hotel in Montecasino.

Now until 2019+
