The nose displays a melange of fruit salad with aromas of greengage, fresh lime, yellow apple, green melon – even whiffs of angelica and lemon verbena – creating complexity. The tropical character follows through onto the palate, with flavours of passion fruit, guava, pineapple and papaya. The mid-palate is slightly flinty yet balanced, with a medium body and vibrant, integrated acidity. Hints of preserved quince, green fig and tarragon linger on the palate with a nostalgic streak of chalky minerality.

Our Chenin is grown on decomposed granitic soils, lending freshness and a fruity character, reflecting the beautiful quince, bruised apple and pear juice character – so typical of Swartland Chenin.
