The wine exhibits fruity aromas typical to the variety: mango, papaya and ripe grapefruit come to the fore, whilst subtle oak character lends depth to the aromatic profile. With an entrance of tangy acidity, the palate fleshes out to a succulent and weighty mouthful. There is an element of mineral freshness which accentuates the crisp, clean mid-palate and continues through to the long, rich finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chenin Blanc has a light custard cream and lemon curd bouquet that is compact at the moment but unwinds in the glass. The palate is crisp and malic on the entry with apple peelings and citrus lemon, the finish just a little more "brusque" than I would have liked. Otherwise, fine.

Wine SpectatorShows a slightly off-dry feel to the finish, with light peach and melon notes showing a dash of almond. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,000 cases made.
