Oldenburg Vineyards Chenin Blanc 2015

Oldenburg Vineyards Chenin Blanc 2015

Light straw yellow colour. Tropical fruit especially granadilla and green apple dominates. The light oaking shows as a pleasant caramel biscuit flavour. Crisp acidity, succulent mouthfeel and a refreshing finish which lingers.

Serve slightly chilled and enjoy with creamy seafood dishes or spicy chicken curries.
