TASTING NOTES


This Chenin Blanc again delivers a vibrant, fresh white wine with great intensity of fruit flavours. Tropical fruit flavours of guava and melon with elements of citrus and red apple create a fruit salad style palate. The Chenin Blanc displays some nice fruit weight and texture with an attractive sweetness balanced with fresh natural acidity.

Desperatly Pleasurable


Certified organic, the chenin on the estate was planted in 1978. Fruit was harvested overnight, pressed immediately and transferred to tank for fermentation. Lees were left in situ and stirred regularly for 6 weeks to achieve texture. White pear, summer apricot, jasmine tea and white spice. The palate has a waxy Vouvray vibe going on, which really builds on itself through the evolution over the palate. Desperately pleasurable, jolly good drinking"
