2019 The Liberator Episode 29 Chenin No.5 Western Cape
The Liberator collection of wines is the brainchild of Richard Kelley (AKA Rick), a master of wine and recognised authority on South African wines. Over three decades in the industry, this Cape Crusader has made a lot of friends throughout this great winemaking nation. Every time he visits the Cape, he visits his friends and has a rummage through their cellars, uncovering great wines that don’t quite fit in the winery’s portfolio, are deemed too experimental or are destined to be blended away. Rick’s mission is to seek out and liberate small parcels of wine from great producers, ensuring they reach the table of the most inquisitive and discerning wine customer. Each episode represents a single discovery and precious parcel that is both unique and finite. Episode 29, Chenin No. 5 is a parcel which has been ‘freed’ from a very illustrious address in the Western Cape, responsible for some of South Africa’s finest white wines. Fabulous value Chenin Blanc with full and long flavours of quince and peach. What a treat!
