Tasting Note

A full bodied, well rounded wine with a complex structure . This wine is a great example of the harmonious balance which can be achieved between fruit and delicate oak/vanilla flavours, as they combine to form complex, soft flavours with sufficient body to enhance even spicy and full flavoured meals. Flavours bursts with dried apricots and pineapple, with a hint of vanilla and some typical Chenin honey notes on the long lasting finish.

Staff favourite!

  • Agustin Trapero of Avenue found ‘apple skins and a little sourness in the aromatics’ and a palate that was ‘well balanced, round and long with some almondy nut flavours’. ‘Very subtle, pretty, easy drinking with a hint of spice,’ added team leader Sam Caporn MW.
