More from this Producer
Our goal with this wine is always for it to be a balanced wine, with ample, yet not overbearing fruit, nice spice and game notes. Striking but with restraint.
A striking nose of orange blossom, tangerine, honeysuckle and lemon grass. Similar themes as the wine envelopes the palate. Notes of honey, lemon, fresh cut grass and a shadow of passion fruit. Structured with hints of graphite, the slightest sweetness is dispelled at the finish with a striking acidity of barely ripe passion fruit and citrus.
A cool and intricate nose, almost fatty like Pork Rillet, a deep sense of minerality of lime stone, wet stone. Soft citrus notes subdued by the hint of sweetness. There is oyster shell on the palate, saline and pleasantly tannic, woven with the clear dusting of chaparral. There is a real sense of inhaling the fine aromas in an old white wine cellar.
Chenin Blanc is one of those grape varieties that can be difficult to decipher and put into words, Marsanne is similar. They can be a beautiful wine but not obvious or showy. An intriguing nose showing lime blossom intertwined with the dry grasses of summer. There is an alluring thread of serrano fat. Clear minerality. On the palate there is more lime, perhaps Rangpur, some of the bitter touch of citrus pith. The structure is balanced with great acidity and a glimmer of gentle tannin. Long on the palate.
