Wine Description:

A stunning Chenin Blanc from Boutinot in Stellenbosch. Barrel fermented, lees contact and oak matured. Stunning, rich, ripe fruit balanced by acidity.

Tasting Note:

The nose is enormously redolent of Manuka honey and yellow pollen. The palate is soft and creamy with citrus and a wonderful textural minerality, waxy lanolin notes and honey. Lovely palate weight and Vouvray-like body supports further complexity and decadence.
