Tasting Notes

The pinnacle of what we consider to be the finest expression of the grapes of this varietal an icon Chenin, a challenge to the world! Rich, layered with dried apricot, vanilla, and honey. Will gain additional complexity with cellaring. 

Food Matching

Enjoy as an exciting aperitif or with spiced dishes, even mild seafood/shellfish or curries. Great with exotic Eastern spiced foods.  

Vineyard

Hand-selected Chenin Blanc primarily from low-yielding, old bush vines (planted in 1974). Harvested at full maturity. 

Vinification: Natural wild yeast fermentation in new French oak 400 L barrels. Due to repetitive harvesting, some botrytis is always present. Maturation on the lees total of 12 months in the barrel.
