Tasting Notes

Aromas of dried fruits, honey and dried flowers with mineral notes and exotic fruit on the palate. Good balance of sweet fruit and a persistent roundness.  There is noticeable residual sweetness that is well balanced by zippy acidity.  The rich palate and that bit of sweetness makes this a complimentary wine pairing with dishes that are rich or creamy.  Delicious as an aperitif, with scallops, foie gras, pork, Turkey dinner, root vegetables and of course a cheese plate. 

Method

This Chenin Blanc is fermented in stainless steel, aged on the lees with some new wood in the barrel program as well; 90% in glass coated tanks for an aromatic, modern profile and 10% in new cask. The wine is kept on its fine lees until bottling.  The final wine has about 9 g/L RS, so it is on the cusp of sec / demi sec.
