This barrel fermented, single vineyard expression on limited release is a flag bearer for Chenin Blanc of Durbanville origin. White peach, apricot kernel and marmalade combine with honey wax, soy, pine nuts and a hint of kerosene. Richness derived from lees contact and barrel maturation impresses on the weighted, textured palate that has opulence well captured in firm acidity and a dry, saline finish. Serious yet refined, powerful yet elegant.
A worthy dinner companion that will compliment rich, buttery grilled gamefish, and a salty charcuterie spread.
