A fresh, elegant Chenin Blanc. Mounds of citrus, lemon zest and vanilla compliment an exotically wooded aroma. The palate shows loads of peaches and apricots, yellow plums with a crisp acidity holding the wine together.
100% Chenin blanc. Grapes are picked at optimal ripeness with generous acidity and whole bunch pressed followed by fermentation in French oak barrels with a combination of new, 2nd fill and 3rd fill 225L barrels. The wine is kept on its fermentation lees with the occasional batonnage for 10 months until bottling.
