This Chenin Blanc reflects the individuality of its terroir, and represents the very best from the Croydon vineyards. Concentrated aromas of pear, white peach and fynbos on the nose with layers of citrus and honeysuckle on the palate. Elegant fruit give this wine a creamy mouth feel and a long, fresh, earthy finish.
Pairs well with roasted chicken, grilled trout or pan-fried pork chops with apple sauce.
