L'Avenir 2015 Single Block 30 Chenin Blanc (Stellenbosch)

This is in its infancy now, but it's remarkably refined and nuanced, showing great promise for evolution and development. Notes of melon rind, orange peel, lemon verbena and fresh fynbos fill the bouquet, while the palate offers more pithy citrus and green melon characters. It's well-balanced, with vibrant acidity and a fresh wet-stone minerality that endures through the long finish. It's hard to resist now, but it will continue to mature and hold well through 2024.
