100% Chenin Blanc
Medium to full bodied white wine. Fruit driven food wine.
The 2017 Chenins will be remembered for its beautiful richness and structure. This wine has a great spectrum of fruity aromas together with some flinty characters, which are terroir driven. These aromas carry through onto a rich creamy palate with great lenght. Excellent ageing potential and superb versatility with a wide variety of dishes complete this irresistible package.
