So what’s it like? Well first we’ll say the variety is chenin blanc, but it’s not like any Australian Chenin. It’s rich and luscious with a palate of honeysuckle and fig. But what sets it apart is the balance of minerality and sweetness. It also has excellent acidity to ensure it will have an extended life but a touch of residual adds to the interest factor. I read somewhere the taste is similar to a baked apple pie and you know what, that is spot on.
Complex notes of flowers, quince, lanolin, apples, and citrus are all integrated in wines that have refreshing acidity which aids their slow evolution. The wine is a brilliant pale gold. On the nose, there is a fine bouquet full aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit such as pears. One finds citrus notes such as grapefruit. The attack is gentle with a lovely vivacity where one finds agreeable notes of grapefruit on the lingering finish. It is a lovely wine, ripe and refreshing.
