Tasting Notes

This Chenin Blanc is true to the terroir characterized by cool climate and limestone soils. It has fresh fruit aromas on the nose, rich minerality and soft acidity on the palate. The oak aromas are well integrated and very subtle on the taste. The palate is lively, creamy and finishes off well with good length.

– Tariro Masayiti

Aromas of peaches and lemons follow through to a medium body, bright acidity and a vivid finish. Shows delicious and focused fruit. Drink now.
