Case of 6 bottles.

Sorry, we just ran out. While we are organizing a re-order, check out Crossley's (Ossington) or La Palette (Queen St West) as they have bottles.

This is a dry, white, gastronomic wine made from 100% Chenin grapes, that demonstrates the great potential for white wines in Vacquiers.

In order to respect the typicity of the terroir and grape varieties, only the natural yeasts present on the grape skins at harvest are used. Following a slow pressing at low pressure, fermentation is in stainless steel tanks, equipped with thermal control. Ageing is on the fine lees for approximately 6 months, in a combination of stainless steel tanks (40%), sandstone (grés) amphora (30%), and demi-muids (small casks). Alc./vol.: 14%.

Tasting note: Intense straw yellow colour. Intense, aromas and flavours of melon, apricot, orange and lime citrus, ripe apples, and quince jam. Medium- to full-bodied, dry, fresh acidity, well balanced, with a touch of bitterness on the long finish. Like quality Chenin, this wine will age, so try and hold back a bottle or two for a couple of years.

Pairings:A wine for food - enjoy with grilled white meat dishes, roast chicken, cassoulet, fish and seafood, and earthy vegetarian dishes, and pressed cheese.
