Mark Le Roux – Chenin Blanc 2019

£28.00

Aromas of stone fruit, sweet melon, a hints of a lime and a herbal pithiness. Lovely intense volume on the palate with rich, warm fruit flavours and a long smooth finish.

Description

An excellent example of the unique characteristics of a South African Chenin Blanc, the country’s flagship white wine.

The winemaking process begins from being hand harvested, and then bunch sorted before being whole bunch pressed directly to old 500L oak barrels for fermentation. I then allowed for spontaneous fermentation to take place. After fermentation, the wine was left on the gross lees for 6 months before blending, and then aged for a further 2 months as a final blend before bottling took place.
