The Infinite 3, Chenin Blanc 2016, Coastal Region, South Africa
Tasting Note: Drink the color yellow with this ultimate of most-limited releases that has personality and structure.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a nose of green apple, ripe-yellow pear, white blossom and honeysuckle bud.
On the palate the dry, chenin blanc is medium-plus in acidity with concentrated flavor intensity and depth of flavor that is demonstrative of indigenous-yeast fermentation.
The wine well balances acidity with its yellow-fruit components.
Bottle Note: Three fine gentlemen; a Zimbabwean Sommelier, a bearded Scotsman and a blue eyed surfer from South Africa. Drawn together by their passion for wine held together by true friendship, the Infinite 3 represents a spirit of fearless creativity and elegant craftmanship. Made from dry land bush vines planted in 1892. Whole bunch pressed in the basket and naturally fermented in an old French oak barrel. Harmless sediment may occur due to the natural wine making process. 35 year old bush vines. Bottle number 274 of 400.
