Super sick serious Chenin. Nose of beeswax, almonds, superb minerality, hint of honey, so deep, concentrated and super deep with intense acidity and explosiveness. So pure and fresh. Clean. Lanolin. Superb texture. Juicy and so so clean. Long and lingering. Superb structure and length. Lingers forever. Salty finish. Huge wine. Massively structured and also a hint of lime. Sick.

Loads of juicy mouthy watering acidity. Has a nutty aspect and some sea spray. Has a just a little bit of lemon head candy after the other shell has dissolved.

HT @Lyle Fass ....love this wine. Beautiful mineral and herbs on the nose, fantastic lemon and stone on the palate, with loads of dry extract. So yummy!
