Inviting aromas of green melon and pineapple, with a broad, rich, palate that calls to mind sunny tropical fruit intermingled with quince and lemongrass. Pure refreshment!
Beautiful well chilled on its own or with chicken Caesar salad.
Rifle Range white is a blend of 56% Sauvignon Blanc and 44% Chenin Blanc. The vines are surprisingly old for so modestly-priced a wine (older wines give better wine) - 33 years old for the Chenin and 18 years for the Sauvignon.
Stellenbosch-based Kanu dates from 1692 when German soldier Matthias Greef was gifted the farm by a local governor. At first he used it to raise sheep and grow medicinal herbs, before coming to his senses and switching to grapes. Much later, during the Anglo-Boer war, the estate was used as a horse supply camp, rifle range and hospital.
Kanu is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative, an alliance between South Africa’s conservation and wine sectors that helps to preserve such exotic lovelies as the cape leopard and geometric tortoise. It devotes over a third of its land to native wildlife.
