Martin Meinert, Italian Job, White Merlot, Chenin Blanc, South Africa
Flavours of citrus fruit, gooseberries and passion fruit with a clean, minerally aftertaste.
Quirky South African version of an unusual Swiss white wine, this is mostly Merlot, with 15% Chenin Blanc, but white; the nose is delicately imprinted with rose petals, the mouth fills with white peach and quince, the whole is faintly flinty, drinkable ... and a talking point! WINE AWARDS
