Laborie Chenin Blanc 2016

This lively and fresh Chenin Blanc shows prominent aromas of pineapple, tropical fruit and litchi with underlying hints of oak and almonds. On the palate, the wine is concentrated and round with nuances of kumquat and guava. Its linear acidity enhances the wine’s freshness and enduring finish.

Enjoy this wine on its own, with salads, fresh seafood and dishes with chicken or duck.

in the vineyard : The vintage was dry, warm and early for the most part, with smaller berries and lower yields. Some varieties set inconsistently - even within the same bunch or cluster. The significantly smaller harvest coupled with the dry conditions induced earlier ripening. Reds look very good whereas the whites were challenging due to lower acids, but the winemaking team were up to the challenge and produced a solid performance.
