Lemon and grapefruit, a bit grassy and peppery. Refreshing but not very complex so far. Maybe more will emerge day 2.

Sterile. The reds are revolutionary, but the whites do not inspire me.

Hey it's Spring. This is a gear up for nice weather wine. Citrusy.

Green apple and unripe peach on the palate. On the nose a funky vinegary acidity, which is not very pleasant. Not a bad wine, but I’ll pick a dry Riesling over a chenin any day.

Lacking the breadth and depth the 2016 has. Perhaps needs a wee bit more time in bottle.

Super refreshing nose full of tangerines/orange zest green papaya?, floral notes and grapefruit. On the palate I get notes of honey, orange marmalade white peppercorn, lemongrass, Stoney finish. Medium bodied, Well balanced acidity. Served with whole grilled mackerel and summer vegetables.

A bit more of a muscular Chenin than French varieties but still delicious. An alluring wet nose, palette loaded with fruit like peach, persimmon and quince. Big in body with an intense mineral grip. Would be great with fried food or seafood.
