Cederberg Five Generations Chenin Blanc 2013

Cederberg Five Generations Chenin Blanc 2013

This wine was produced from a single vineyard block. Nine selected barrels were used to produce 360 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.
