Blackwater Underdog Chenin Blanc
Blackwater is a project of Francois Haasbroek, one of the pioneers of a new wave of winemaking in South Africa. After having graduated from Stellenbosch University with a degree in viticulture and oenology, he travelled the world and worked at Dry Creek Vineyard in Sonoma. His winemaking approach is quite simple: low intervention in the cellar with no winemaking tricks. His Chenin Blanc is light and clean with notes of grapefruit, bay-leaf, and lemon sorbet. Fresh oysters are just the thing to pair with this little gem.
