Though the fruit is starting to fade on this mature Chenin, it's drinking quite beautifully now with rich notes of fresh butter, baked apple, clove-spiced orange and yellow florals on the nose. Peach pit, honeydew and orange oil flesh out the mouth, but the acid cuts through the weight and provides a clean cut to the spice-infused finish. Drink now.
