Wine of Western Cape, South Africa
From the bottle
This quirky blend of Chenin Blanc, Semillon and Muscat is soft fruity with masses of apricot and peach flavours. Our Quirky Birds don't like being cellared so drink while young, with friends and whatever spicy food you enjoy the most.

I love a good label and this bottle just looked so fun and friendly on the shelf that I just had to take it home, but unfortunately, it was not meant to be a new friend. Very pale in the glass and the aroma - peach with a hint of pineapple, is a little pale too. On to the taste it is a little peachy but has quite heavy citrus notes. Although the acidity isn't too overpowering it would definitely work better with food. A soft, medium dry wine with a taste that leaves the mouth quickly.
Rating - Wouldn't turn down a free glass
