100% Chenin Blanc
Medium to full bodied white wine. Fruit driven food wine.
This wine has beautiful aromas of white peach, winter melon and quince on the nose, with whiffs of butterscotch. These aromas carry through onto a creamy palate that finishes with a lively acidity. Excellent ageing potential and superb versatility with a wide variety of dishes complete this irresistible package.
