Dekker’s Valley Seraphic 2016

Dekker’s Valley Seraphic 2016

An unwooded blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Viognier that was co-fermented to provide an integrated expression of fruit purity. Floral hints of peach and apricot blossom on the nose from the aromatic characteristics of Viognier give way to apple crispness on the initial palate, following through to the full ripeness of Canteloup melon.

An ideal wine to partner with fresh summer salads and seafood.
