Cederberg Five Generations Chenin Blanc 2010

Cederberg Five Generations Chenin Blanc 2010

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. The Chenin blanc is concentrated and structured for longevity. An elegant well crafted wine.
