About

South Africa has long been pursuing excellence in Chenin Blanc, some of their finer examples are considered some of the best in the world. Perhaps it should come as no surprise that a South African is taking Australian Chenin Blanc to the next level - ladies and gentleman, this is one serious Chenin Blanc.

In an effort to highlight the variety’s ability to articulately communicate terroir, Tripe.Iscariot owner/winemaker Remi Guise is releasing a pair of Margaret River subregional expressions of this often maligned grape. They were stunning to try back to back. This, the Wilyabrup wine, was our favourite.

It is a wine of immediate impact, bold and full flavoured. It has tension and depth, all in all, it is a remarkable achievement. Mike Bennie described it as a wine that “Races through the mouth in a savoury-citrussy flow, zig-zags and exits with a needle point of lovely bitterness. Smashing.”

Lovers of textural, powerful white wines are going to fall in love with this. Be quick, there are only 45 dozen of these in existence.

What It Tastes Like

Cap gun smoke, peach kernal, melons and nuts. Grapefruit and lemon tang with a long seam of flint running through its core. There’s something a little herbaceous or herbal in the background. Luscious texture, some grip and a laser beam of acid all tied up in the full flavour. Some leesy cheesyness in there as well for added complexity. Superb.
