Running Duck Organic South African Chenin Blanc – Only £14.95

For wine enthusiasts looking to explore the vibrant flavors of South African wines, the Running Duck Organic Chenin Blanc is a standout choice. This delightful wine, crafted by Stellar Organics, not only offers a taste of the region’s rich viticultural heritage but also embodies a commitment to organic and sustainable winemaking practices.

Running Duck Organic Chenin Blanc hails from the Western Cape, a renowned wine-producing area in South Africa. The name “Running Duck” is inspired by the vineyard’s natural pest control method: a flock of Indian Runner ducks patrol the vines, eating pests and weeds, thus eliminating the need for harmful pesticides. This eco-friendly approach ensures that the wine is free from synthetic chemicals and additives, making it a healthier option for both the environment and the consumer.

In the glass, Running Duck Chenin Blanc showcases a pale straw color with greenish hues. On the nose, it offers enticing aromas of green apple, pear, and a hint of honey. The palate is fresh and lively, with flavors of crisp apple, juicy tropical fruits, and a touch of citrus. Its well-balanced acidity and smooth finish make it a versatile wine that pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes, from seafood and salads to light poultry dishes.

Beyond its delicious taste, Running Duck Chenin Blanc reflects Stellar Organics’ dedication to ethical winemaking. The winery is Fair Trade certified, ensuring fair wages and good working conditions for its employees, and it actively supports community development projects in the region.

Savoring a glass of Running Duck Organic South African Chenin Blanc means enjoying a wine that not only delights the senses but also contributes to a sustainable and equitable world. Cheers to that!
