i was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to help sorting out chenin blanc grapes in seahorse winery as part of 2019 wine preparation.

i recieved a bottle of last year's wine as a gratitude.

100% chenin Blanc
wild fermentation with no added yeast.
9 months french oak treatment.

14.5% ABV 💪
lots of sweetness in the grape for the yeast to burp all this drunkability.

pale straw with some yellow hinted 👀

colder it's some tropics jumping out at ya.
getting warmer it's almost completely replaced with lemon oil, stone fruit and hints of honey and grated ginger 👃

medium plus body.
bursting high acidity.

it takes a few sips to comprehend the taste.

tart and peachy first. some bitterness coming and hiding at every other sip. 👄 is filled with balanced and complex tartness and other friends.

dry medium 🎯

a winner that is thought provoking.
this is harmonious complexity, and that is always interesting.

good vfm (110 nis).
quality isn't cheap.

had it with lime(juice and peel) and parmigiano pasta the 1st day, they were good friends but not bff.
on it's own second day. wine is always better with something to munch on.
