The nose reveals; lemon that’s a touch sour in style, peach, lime, overripe pineapple, a little green apple, waxy notes, honeysuckle, fruit blossoms, hints of smoke, delicate minerality and soft chalkiness, yellow & spring flowers with mixed greens.

The body full and round. Peach, white peach, apricot, lime, lemon, some white spice, coating medium minerality & powdery chalkiness, herbaceous notes, yellow, spring flowers with mixed greens. Nice round acidity and well polished finish.

Top chenin blanc with lots of «hope»! Great alternative to the more exclusive french wines from Rohne and Burgundy.
