WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE:
A sweeter white wine with lively acids and fruit flavours, perfect for long lunches for ladies; and delicious to try with spicy Asian curries. Explosion of flavours when tasted alongside a little ampalaya (bitter gourd) – must try!
WINEMAKER / TASTING NOTES:
All the joys of this Australian wine are in its fresh zesty fruit and crisp flavours. However carefully it is cellared, these flavours will begin to change after 18 months to 2 years. Chenin is one of those Rutherglen region wines that can age brilliantly if left long enough. At five years and beyond it re-emerges as a soft, honeyed wine of great complexity. Chenin Blanc is a versatile style which can fit almost anywhere in the cellar. A great style for drinking as an aperitif or with a late afternoon antipasto plate. It also works well with lightly spiced dishes and fruit desserts.
