This is a stunning and cellar-worthy Chenin that exhibits superb balance and layers of flavor. At first it's nutty and toasty on the nose, with notes of grilled red apple, orange rind and honeydew providing a solid fruit core. Threads of mineral and a soft fynbos character weave through the palate. Peach pit and sweet spice flavors grace the long, evolving finish.
