Muratie Laurens Campher 2018 (White Blend)

Muratie Laurens Campher 2018 (White Blend)

A seamless blend of four varietals to create a uniquely South African wine honouring one of the country’s wine pioneers. Lively fresh lemon and lime notes from the Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc are given added interest with fragrant floral hints from the Verdelho and Viognier components. On the palate, the wine is elegant and complex with flavours of honeysuckle, lime marmalade and fresh almonds, all wrapped in creamy oak. Zippy acidity runs through the wine until the eminently satisfying, lengthy finish.

This off-dry wine is best savoured with creamy chicken dishes as well as mild, aromatic spicy dishes such as curries.
