Leleshwa Chenin Blanc
20 years ago, experts told the good people at Kenya Nut Company they couldn’t grow grapes in this part of the world. They decided to prove them wrong, so they planted a vineyard at Morendat. Lying along the equator, the grapes enjoy the warmth of the invigorating sun. Temperatures range from a cool 6° to a tropical 32° Celsius, and annual rainfall is 500 to 600mm. This equatorial climate allows each grape to mature and ripen slowly, patiently developing every nuance of its fine fruity taste.
This high-altitude Chenin Blanc is medium bodied with delicate fruity aromas reminiscent of lemons, apples and pears. It’s uplifting acidity will complement foods such as pork chops, chicken picatta, fried tilapia, rich goat cheeses, and fatty vegetarian dishes. Serve well chilled at temperatures between 8-10 degrees.
