Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Viognier
White Wine
Even in a challenging vintage like 2016, the components of this intriguing blend contributed to a wine which delivers so much more than a mere sum total of individual components. Separate fermentation and ageing of all components enable us to identify the very best quality available to craft our classic three-variety blend. The vibrant mid-palate and crisp finish was achieved this year by increasing the percentage of Chenin Blanc used in the blend.

Wine Spectator Notes : Plump and friendly, with rounded yellow apple, pineapple and plantain notes. Easy finish. Viognier, Chenin Blanc and Grenache Blanc. Drink now.

Tasting Notes : An alluring nose shows white peach, apricot and apple blossom aromas in abundance. The nose follows through with flavours of nectarine and hints of pineapple and peach melba. The wine is smooth and round with slight oak nuances, a fleshy mid-palate, balanced, integrated acidity and a vibrant, lingering, stone fruit finish.
