CHENIN BLANC 2021
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Chenin Blanc
WINE OF ORIGIN: Coastal Region
Grapes are sourced from a selection of cool coastal sites. Specially
chosen to give ripeness and complexity with absolute attention to
detail throughout the pruning and suckering stages. This provides
beautiful balanced fruit at harvest time.
Handpicked in the early hours of the morning to retain fruit
complexity, cold fermented with 20% Foudre fermentation.
Once fermentation is completed wine components are blended and
then left on the secondary lees for 3 months. This practice adds
complexity, mid-pallet and overall mouthfeel to the final wine.
Colour: Lively green with pale straw tinge
Palate: Bright green apple and melon flavours, unfolding into layers
of citrus and mineral notes, finishing crisp and clean.
FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTION:
The younger the wine, the better it will suit fresh salads and grilled
seafood. As the wine matures and the spicy and honeyed notes
start to develop, it will pair beautifully with spicy Asian cuisine.
