La Cave Chenin Blanc 2020
TASTING NOTES (March 2022)
Medium gold hue, with charming aromas of yellow apples, saffron, baked custard, quince and vanilla on the nose. There is a fleshy texture on the mid-palate with a rounded mouthfeel, and the oak is in perfect balance with the sleek acidity. Intense flavours of peaches and ripe citrus, while the finish has a pithy edge and lengthy notes of dried apricots. This wine is beautifully poised and has the depth, structure and fruit purity to facilitate further ageing.
