Description

Tasting notes:
Golden hued and full bodied, with melon and spicy baked apple aromas. Layered, with mineral notes enhanced by honeycomb and caramel flavours from lees contact. This wine is a great example of the harmonious balance which can be achieved between fruit and delicate oak/vanilla flavours, as they combine to form complex, soft flavours with sufficient body to enhance even spicy and full flavoured meals.
Variety: 100% Chenin Blanc
Food suggestions: Can be served with varied spicy dishes, full flavoured fish or chicken dishes. Ideal with crayfish, prawns.
A true benchmark for relaxed enjoyment.
