Five Generations Chenin Blanc 2016

Five Generations Chenin Blanc 2016

Seven selected barrels were used to produce 700 cases. Delicate aromas of honey, lime zest, roasted nuts and peaches laced with sweet vanilla undertones. Well-integrated wood and ageing on the lees developed a full, rich palate with a smooth lingering finish. This Chenin Blanc is concentrated and structured for longevity. An elegant well crafted wine.
