Deetlefs Reserve Chenin Blanc 2018 awarded TOP score

Deetlefs Reserve Chenin Blanc 2018 was recently awarded a top score of 90+ by the Wine Advocate.

The Wine Advocate, fully known as the Robert Parker Wine Advocate, is a bimonthly wine publication based in the United States featuring the consumer advice of wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr.

“The 2018 Chenin Blanc begins with aromas of fresh citrus and almond skin, with a pineapple and peach core that is lifted by hints of sweet oak spices. Medium-bodied, the palate is spicy and straightforward across the mid-palate and concludes with a nish that leaves me wanting a touch more complexity and depth of expression.”
