This wine elicits pear and green apple aromas. Ripe fruit is tempered by finely balanced acidity. The palate is refreshing and lingering. The versatility of Chenin Blanc makes this wine ideal for almost any occasion.


The soils are sandy clay with a northeast aspect. The vineyards are trellised with a yield of approximately 9 tons per hectare. Grapes are picked at 24 degrees balling.

After picking, grapes are crushed, chilled, and settled overnight. A long, cool fermentation at 13 degrees Celsius in stainless steel tanks yields a simple, clean, natural wine.
