This crisp, reductively made Chenin Blanc is in true Cederberg Style, showing a powerful nose of tropical melon, grapefruit and lemon peel. Five months of lees contact created a mouth tingling crispness with a lingering finish. Superb food compatibility.
Sea air is the most prevelent scent in this wine-a subtle saline aroma that gets you salivating. There's a kiwi-berry fruit marked by herbal verbena notes, the wine's viscosity areated bu high acidity.
