Blend Information

Chenin Blanc

In The Cellar

Tasting notes: The wine has intense fruit with a touch of wood spice on the nose, including guava and citrus. On the palate it is rich and full bodied with good balance and a long finish. The wine has the structure to last but Chenin Blanc is usually best drunk young and fresh (within 2 years).
