Why do we love it?
If you love acidity and want to get away from Assyrtiko and Riesling, then Kliprug Chenin Blanc - Kaapzicht from South Africa will surely excite you. We wanted for a long time to find a Chenin Blanc that expresses the typicality of the variety, but in its most neocosmic version. It has aromatic purity, it is fresh and we managed to secure only a few bottles!
 
Kaapzicht winery is located in South Africa's most famous wine region, Stellenbosch. In 1946, David Steytler, a major in the Second World War, decided to resign and become a viticulturist! A year later he planted the first Chenin Blanc vines, which today are among the oldest in South Africa. The winery now operates with the 4th generation at the helm and Danie Jnr carrying on the tradition. The Kliprun vineyard, planted in 1982 on wild rocky soils, belongs to the rare Old Vines category of South Africa, which includes a total of only 10 vineyards and strictly concerns vines aged 35 years or more.
 
Kliprug Chenin Blanc - Kaapzicht, comes from mild pressure juice fermented for 2-4 weeks in barrels. It was aged there for 10 months before bottling, acquiring a slightly oily feel and velvety texture, but retaining the freshness of the fruit. These were the reasons why it was awarded 92pts by Tim Atkin.
 
You will enjoy it now and in the next 3 years!

PAIR IT

Pair it with shellfish, grilled sea bass, pasta salad, and salmon

Chicken Piccata

  • 2 chicken fillets (breast or thigh)
  • 3 tbsps. of butter
  • 3 juicy lemons
  • 150 ml. white wine (preferably Sauvignon blanc or Assyrtiko)
  • 150 ml. chicken broth, hot
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • Olive oil
  • Flour for all purposes
  • Capers
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

First mush up, in a mortar, a pinch of salt, a few peppercorns, some lemon zest and 1 1/ tablespoon of olive oil.

Cut the fillets along with a sharp knife, creating 2 slices of each breast.

Brush the fillets with the mortar mixture by lightly massage the chicken and then flour the fillets.

In a large pan add 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When they heat up, we sauté the chicken until it gets a nice golden color and we remove it from the pan.

In the same pan add the broth and the wine. Allow to boil and then put the fillets back into the pan.

Leave it to high heat until the sauce begins to thicken slightly.  As long as the sauce cools, it will thicken even more, so do not let the whole sauce evaporate.

Add 1 tablespoon of butter, the lemon juice from the two lemons and a few slices of lemon, shake the pan and add the capers.

Remove it from the fire, add chopped parsley and serve with thin pasta, rice or boiled potatoes!
