4 /5

- The wine offers a complex nose showing quince, white peach, yellow apple, acacia, nettles, white pepper and fenu greek spices and an intense minerality. The stone fruit character follows through onto an exceptionally balanced, very delicate, fine textured limey palate showing a peach-melba character with an exquisite roundness and freshness. The wine lingers with hints of ripe nectarine and apricot, zesty lemon and wet chalk.
- 100% Chenin Blanc.
- Pairs well with a variety of foods, but we recommend tempura prawns, a pear/walnut/rocket salad, roasted red pepper soup, spicy chicken wings and grilled halloumi cheese.
