This is one of those you don't forget. Amazing nuttyness, depth and texture. Still some lively fruit in the many layers this wine has to offer. Not for everyone though.

I always expect 15 year old Chenin to show this this way - creme brûlée, toasted almond. Nice. Not a 'twiggy' wine.

This was either entering a dumb phase or already past full maturity. Acid driven and minerally, but otherwise closed off. Pleasantly oxidative and badly oxidized, all at once.

complex oxidative chenin, pretty, dark-citrine color, fleeting copper and hazelnut flavors paraphrasing a full paragraph of amontillado sherry, great acid follow through - wonderful for sunset and not a bad cream sauce companion.

Rich honey, slightly oxidative, nutty, tropical fruit, very linear!
