Killer value — heaps of apples, peaches, and lemon that give ripe, sweet fruit and plenty of weight. Enough acidity to keep it lively and cheerful.

Loved this, and I don't really care for whites. Superb dry finish.

Stunning blend for the price. More of a peach flavor than I remember, and could use a touch more acid to cut through some of the fruit flavors. All-in-all, a great wine for a warm day.

You definitely get the touch of Viognier on this wine - oily aromas. It's heavy on the palate but you still get the fruit profile of Chenin and the acidity on the finish.

True Chenin chamomile/macadamia nut, with acidity to balance the slightly rich body and fruit. Great bargain; lovely wine.
