2015 CHENIN BLANC, Perfectly Flawed, The Liberator. S. Africa

Bin: 325
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Grape Variety: Chenin Blanc fermented in 'concrete egg' and matured under a veil of 'flor' yeast - as happens with dry Sherry.
Producer: 'The Liberator' is a project by English MW (and expert in South Africa) Richard Kelley who 'liberates' small parcels of wines languishing in the cellars of smart wineries, and sells them at very sensible prices.
Richard's comments: "Outside of the Jura and the Jerez triangle, there are few wine regions in the world where Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the flor yeast responsible for the biological aging of Sherry and Sherry-like wine exist. The Cape is one of them. Enjoying the same 33 degrees latitude as Jerez, one can understand why the climate might be suited to flor-affected wines. Remember too that South Africa had a one-time colonial link with providing the Empire with ‘sherry’."
He liberated this wine from Fable Vineyards in Tulbagh.
Old Bridge Rating: Only a hint of 'sherry' character; this is dry, nutty, mildly creamy - and fascinating.
