100% Chenin Blanc
Medium bodied white wine. Fruit driven.
Freshly peeled apple aromas on the nose, with some hints of tangerine and lemon. The palate is layered and well balanced which makes this an elegant wine with great finesse. 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.

Yield: 6.7 tons/Ha
Grapes were night harvested; 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.
