Arya 2016

75cl Doran Vineyards Chenin Blanc/Grenache Blanc/Rousanne South Africa > Paarl Fruit driven, smooth and dry
The wine is a symphony of white pear, bright green apple and orange aromas. A creamy texture follows on the palate with a long lingering finish of peach and honey.

 "The Voor Paardeberg technically falls within Paarl but the wines often feel like their spiritual home is more Swartland. Doran Vineyards is a relatively new venture in the ward, first bottling being 2012, but shows signs of soon becoming a hipster favourite, their most recent release being Arya 2015, an unwooded white blend consisting of 57% Chenin Blanc, 22% Grenache Blanc and 21% Roussanne.

On the nose, pear, white peach and maybe a hint of orange. The palate meanwhile possesses good weight and texture (thanks to two months on the lees) but equally the wine is not short of freshness and there is a nice pithy quality to the finish. Drink anytime, anywhere" WineMag SA
