|Region||South Africa, Swartland|
|Brand||David & Nadia|
The 2015 Aristargos is a blend of 35% Chenin Blanc, 23% Roussanne, 15% Clairette Blanche, 19% Viognier and 8% Semillon. It has a captivating bouquet with lanolin, pressed flower and subtle nectarine aromas. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, lively and vibrant with nuanced fresh ginger and lemongrass notes that impart a judicious spiciness towards the finish. The 2014 was excellent and this might be even better.
A blend of 35% Chenin Blanc, 23% Roussanne, 15% Clairette, 19% Viognier and 8% Sémillon, this is dense and softly toasty upfront, with seductive notes of baked apple, pressed yellow flowers, dried orange peel, straw and lanolin. The palate is similarly lush and decadent, though with an ample seam of acidity to keep it all in check. Drink now-2022.
