The FMC 2016

The pinnacle of what we consider to be the finest expression of the grapes of this varietal - an icon chenin, a challenge to the world! Rich, layered with dried apricot, vanilla and honey.

Enjoy with special friends as an exciting aperitif or with spiced dishes, even mild seafood/ shellfish or curries. Great with exotic Eastern spiced foods.
