About the wine

Tasting notes

Bright lemon-yellow color and a clear, pure, fresh and aromatic, intense and elegant bouquet with chalky limestone notes. Round, pure and mineral on the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, utterly mineral and tightly structured Chenin with ripe pear flavors on the crisp and salty finish. This wine is full of energy, tension and finesse, and it's one of the finest you can get in this price range

The Grape

Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc is a white grape variety most famous for the beautifully lean and mineral expressions that come out of the Loire Valley in France and the rich and sweet expressions from South Africa. The wines are very aromatic and fruit forward, with flavours of quince, pear, yellow apple, chamomile and honey and can be made in a diverse range of style from sparkling, to lean and mineral, all the way to rich and even fortified. Chenin Blanc is quickly becoming a first choice for lovers of complex and fruity white wines and we think it's only the beginning for this amazing grape.
