This is excellent. Plenty of apple and honey, with a minerally zing. Really good Chenin.

Bonito color dorado, en nariz potente: melón, espárragos, fruta de hueso y toques melosos. En boca muy explosivo de entrada , paso ágil y final agradable pero corto.

Suprisingly buttery chenin blanc, really coats your mouth. Getting flavors of lemonpeel, melon and pear. Hints of chamomile and yellow apple. Not too mineral. Great value!
