FUME CHENIN 2020
Our winemaking team decided to showcase a Swan Valley favourite for our 2020 Fumé - Chenin Blanc! This Fumé does not disappoint, if anything it leaves you wanting more!
Hyper oxygenation, malolactic fermentation, delicate oak ageing for 9 months and lees stirring has created a wine that is full of rich texture and complexity. The harmony between these creamy oak characters, ripe tropical fruit and cleansing acidity is just delightful.
Colour: Golden Hue
Nose: Dried Apricot, Raw Almond and hints of savoury characters.
Palate: Initial sweetness followed by delicate acidity and lingering subtle tannins. Hints of vanilla and spice, apricot and stone fruits.
Drink: Enjoy as a youngster. Try it closer to room temp to get a different experience with a more complex style. Cooler will give a crisper style, while a warmer temperature will let the texture shine.
Residual Sugar: 0.5g per litre
