Dry. Sharp acidity. Some oak treatment but not overpowering. Very well made.

The last of these 12's. Was getting nervous it could be close to post peak but.....wow! Intense, balanced, complex acidity, oak, fruit. A wine that makes you consider qualities of Burg and Rhone tho this btl perhaps not AS MUCH as the last. Very old world in nature. Could hv waited but very happy to hv enjoyed it and shared. Wnehse.

Oak, acidity, lemon zest, pear, apple, nice medium finish. Love a good S African Chenin Blanc. Overall a great weeknight white option that pairs well with a lot of different foods.

16/20 (88/100) В первом носе заметный редуктивный тон (спичечная головка); в развитии моцарелла, зеленое яблоко, лимон. Довольно высокая кислотность, вкус соответствует аромату. Добротно сделанное, но не слишком сложное вино.

Took the last few btls from sfwinehse at half price. Alex was confident it held up and was right. Leaning more to the Burg side now. Share the last one at work.
