Production: 599 cases
Date Tasted: November 24th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A true cult favourite of the Okanagan Valley and worthy of its 'Old Vines' moniker. Sourced from vines planted in 1968, this Chenin Blanc offers delicate and complex aromas of kiwi fruit, minerals, apricot, lime, ripe peach and raw honey on the subtle nose. The palate is concentrated and full-ish with body and texture from 6.5g/l of residual sugar and succulent, tropical fruit flavours. Achieves balance by virtue of Chenin's natural, bombastic acidity and cool minerality. The finish is long. Oh so long. (Thank you 47 year old vines!) Drink now-2018+.
