Never Been Asked to Dance 2021 - Savage
The vines for this wines are leased from around the Western Cape, maritime in nature where possible with granitic soil.
The "Never Been Asked To Dance" is coming from Chenin Blanc planted in 1956 that had been abandoned for many years. One-third has been replanted in the past few years with some interpolated Picpoul, Palomino, Grenache Blanc.
It has a seductive bouquet with scents of shaved almond, beeswax, yellow plum and light orange blossom scents. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins, a keen line of acidity, lightly spiced with hints of orange rind and white pepper on the finish. This is very classy and precise".
The Western Cape is similar to Australia's 'South Australia' region - in the ways that it is a legal region that allows for the wineries to source fruit from all of the sub-regions within the larger region. The larger region in this case is: 'Western Cape', and all the sub-regions cover every main growing area in South Africa
