Groote Post Chenin Blanc 2009

Groote Post Chenin Blanc 2009

From the only bush vines on the farm, a bright, full style with its everpresent tropical fruit and green apple flavours. A very good length and body for this vintage and, as it's bottled under screwcap for the first time, will preserve its freshness and verve for a good few years to come. Excellent value for money.
