Floral and peachy on the nose, in fact this smells of orchard fruit blossoms, very springy and fresh though air does bring out some licorice spice accents and heirloom apple fruit. Supple on entry, though with bright acids, this is a fruitier style of South African Chenin, softer wand with more peachy and pear toned meat on its bones. There’s a nice floral quality to this in the mouth, and while it is relatively fruity it retains the firmness and edge of austerity so typical of the grape. the finish is soft and floral again with hints of lavender over subtle orchard fruit note ending with a squirt of orange oil on the finale. This could pair well with a lighter dish, something with a touch of lavender like Herb de Provence grilled chicken perhaps. 87pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Rich refreshing fruit with hints of pear citrus and honeysuckle and a unique paisley designed bottle make this Chenin Blanc a great choice for a different type of white. COLOR Pale Lemon AROMA Fresh, crisp fruit TASTE Hints of pear, citrus and honeysuckle. The wine is created in a lighter, more accessible style for earlier enjoyment. Length/Type of Fermentation: The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed and had skin contact for a few hours. THe juice was then drained of the skins and settled overnight. After racking, the clean juice was cold fermented in Stainless Steel tanks. Length/Type of Aging: After fermentation the wine was kept on the fine lees for 3 months before stabilization and bottling.
