Tasting Notes

Yellow - Aromas are a heady mix of floral decadence and austere mineral notes. There’s a subtle hint of creamy oak there too, but just a touch. The Palate comes together beautifully. Wonderfully ripe tropical flavours are kept in check by razor sharp acidity, giving the wine a crystalline purity which lasts long into the finish.

Based on Chenin Blanc (60%) SA’s Heritage grape variety, and augmented by classy Chardonnay (30%) and floral Viognier (10%) this white blend r eally does pack a flavour punch.

For further food pairing: Think of slices of cured salmon trout on a lightly smoked potato salad with a fennel & orange salad. Smokey dishes develop aromatic compounds which are similar to the ones found in charred wood barrels.

Blend Information

60% Chenin Blanc, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier

Food Suggestions

Malay scented prawn risotto with heaps of coriander & lime is a perfect match for this white blend. There is more than enough fresh acidity in the wine to handle a good squeeze, and the wood is just enough to complement the buttery risotto
