100% Chenin Blanc
Medium bodied white wine. Fruit driven.
Attractive nose of tropical fruit, winter melon and freshly squeezed white peach. The wine explodes with tangerine flavours on entering a layered, creamy palate. Excellent ageing potential and superb versatility with a wide variety of dishes complete this irresistible package. The subtle use of oak helps to uplift the fruity characters of this versatile cultivar.

Grapes were night harvested and picked by hand to retain flavours.
Grapes were gently crushed and pressed. Wine was cold fermented to show freshness and fruit, but kept on the lees for 11 months to give the wine a creamy mouth-feel. 25% of barrel-fermented wine was blended with the tank-fermented portion (75%) to add a wooded dimension.
