McFarlane Monday’s Child Chenin Blanc 2022
WineSpark Price €26.44
Alex decided to take the leap and start her own business with husband Wayne in 2018.
For her first wine, she chose a Chenin Blanc vineyard in the gorgeous Polkadraai sub-region of Stellenbosch, where afternoon sea-breezes blow in, amplifying the fruit character and freshness in the grapes.
Alex told me the grapes were picked on ‘the most spectacular Monday morning’ - it seemed like the perfect day to start her new adventure. So she called the wine Monday’s Child, after the old nursery rhyme.
After ageing for 7 months in old French oak, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve all that gorgeous character.
An aromatic, flinty and floral nose leads to an intense, piercing and refreshing palate, with gorgeous texture and impressive length.
I’m on a mission to get more people to drink Chenin Blanc, and this wine is exactly why.
