A vibrant and lively white blend made from grapes that were picked earlier to produce a fresh, fruity and lower alcohol wine. A delicious wine which shows great finesse and roundness on the palate and can be enjoyed as an excellent aperitif or lunchtime wine, endlessly versatile and best served well chilled.
Only fruit selected from their oldest Chenin Blanc vineyard, planted in 1978, is used for this wine. Barrel fermentation takes place in 400L French oak using only natural yeasts. Careful selection and use of oak results in perfect balance between wood aroma and fruit flavour, not wanting too much wood to overpower the Chenin grape character. No malolactic fermentation takes place in order to keep the freshness of the wine's acidity.The wine is kept on its gross lees for 10 months with regular batonage, giving the wine a richer and fuller palate. A great food wine that promises ageing ability.
