Made with grapes sourced from 40-year-old bush vines, this Chenin boasts savory herb notes alongside the creamy peach, fig and sweet lime fruit. The medium-weight palate shows well-integrated oak notes that complement the earthy, herbal character. The texture is somewhat nervy now, but this should really start to shine from 2014 on.
