Aromas of peaches, guava and shaved almonds are accompanied by hints of jasmine flowers and zested limes. The palate is lean and elegant, with stone fruit and wild flower flavours leading to a fresh mineral finish. A dry style of Chenin Blanc superb with food.

2016 Chenin Blanc


, Nick Butler, The Vindependent, Lychees and guava - exotic fruit profile here. Some spice also, with bath salts. Very comfortable in its skin for a young wine. A slight slipperiness on the palate, with stone fruits on the mid palate driving into lime acidity. While still very young, the potential is obvious. Far more interesting than many Chenins in the market.
