The nose opens with a beautiful baking-spice element that is just the pure fruit itself – there is no oak on the wine. This has fantastic minerality throughout the palate, and brilliant focus. Chenin, when it’s this good, can get an ambrosial texture that fuses its gorgeous stone fruit notes with its lively acidity. Here it is perfectly merged, creating a lush and smooth wine of wonderful fruit character. It’s as vivid as it enchanting.
