The base is made from Chenin Blanc in stainless steel tanks and bottle fermented in the Traditional Method, The fruit was bright and picked at the perfect time. Made with EC1118 yeast, then spent 14 months on lees and stored underground, at 17°C.

This refreshingly balanced wine is bright straw yellow in color, with an autolytic and pastry aroma. Expect a crisp and tart palate, pome-fruit and red apple, with a lemon curd finish.


Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Score - 95

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
