Chenin blanc of McLaren Vale, a place that seems to do well with this variety in the right hands. From 80-year-old vines too. Fermented and aged in older oak barrels on lees.
Delicious! Textural thing, loaded with lemon curd, almond nutty savouriness, faint sake-like characters and a fine trill of briny acidity to taste. Refreshing while gently coating the palate, a crispness but decidedly in a slippery vein with great extension of flavour and a cool, slightly minty and distinctly saline finish. It’s the kind of medium weight white wine I gravitate towards, and done well. - The Wine Front
