2022 Chenin Blanc
Nectarine, lemon pith and lime peel, the Chenin Blanc deepens with clove and cinnamon on the nose, and carries through to the palate. It has a tight and focused acid line with lovely richness and a touch of cedary oak. If in the company of time, it's recommended to open this bottle an hour or so before to get the full expression of this wine.
Chenin Blanc (100%)
Sourced from one of the most northern blocks in Clare Valley. The Chenin vineyard in Clare Valley is around 60 years old and is practiced organically. It was picked around 11.5 baume and whole bunch pressed to older French and Slovenian oak puncheons and a 2nd 1000 litre casks (mix of European oak). About 5% of the fruit was fermented on as whole bunches for 14 days then pressed off into a mix of puncheons. The fermentation took about 20 days to ferment on lees with full malolactic fermentation as well and left in oak until November before it was racked and a small amount of sulphur added before bottling.
