The South African Chenin Blanc Association has awarded the Fleur Du Cap Chenin Blanc 2004 as a Super Chenin joining the hallowed ranks of the very best Chenin's the country produces.

Super Chenins are wines that have earned a total of ten or more stars in three consecutive vintages from tastings hosted by South Africa's Wine Magazine. This year, only twelve Chenin Blancs were capped with Super Chenin status by the Association.
""This full-bodied and complex wine shows an abundance of pineapple and peach flavours on the nose, whilst the palate unleashes delicate spices, butterscotch and vanilla with an excellent balance between fruit and wood flavours," is how winemaker Kobus Gerber describes the wine. Fleur du Cap has earned repute for its Chenin blancs and all previous vintages have been recognised as having all the complexities and elegance of a fine Chenin blanc."
