Nose is 50/50 wet wool & a steely minerality. Palate shares touches of crisp green apple skin & snow peas, with the dry finish adding some spice. Best Chenin of the flight.

Exotic nose of ripe fruit and flowers. Rich, but with great zesty acidity.

40 year old bush vines planted on decomposed granite and shale. Dry style. Clean, bright aromatics and flavors of lanolin, fresh laundry, and Meyer lemon. Lengthy and mouthwatering finish.
