A really gorgeous French Chenin Blanc from Vouvray.Wonderfully aromatic, full and round, with a golden colour. Notes of exotic tropical fruits, honey, & crushed gravel on the nose. The palate opens with pronounced minerality and then reveals smoky notes and a lingering finish. Truly wonderful.

If there is one thing I love about this wine, it's the subtlety of fruit yet in its own pristine way. The wine still shows a cooked apple and Pie character amongst jasmine, wax and chamomile.
