Very pleasant with mild aromas of white peach and pear, with some white melon. Dry and refreshing with a medium-bodied weight. Good aperitif or salad companion.

Chenin Blanc food pairings: spicy Thai chicken dish.

The 2012 was fermented using wild yeast to emphasize, to as great a degree as possible, the flavours of the vineyard itself. Fermentation took nine months, with a further month of lees ageing. The resulting wine possesses a buttery, toasty note with a bright mineral quality. The ripe fruit gives the wine an off-dry feel on the palate. Enjoy this as an aperitif.
