2017 Chenin Blanc 'The Frutimer'

Chenin Blanc is a classic Swan Valley variety that originates from the Loire Valley in France and offers terrific fruit richness and ability to age.

A very intense and aromatic nose  - ripe honeydew melon and red apple with an underlying floral nuance.

Dry, fresh acid with a pronounced fruit intensity of melon, citrus and apple. The mid-palate displays wonderful tropical fresh fruit intensity, balance and finishes long and dry. Drinks well now but will age with medium term cellaring.

A delicious wine that is unwooded and suits a range of seafood and white meats.

James Halliday writes ... “Echoes of the golden chenins and chardonnays of yesteryear. For those without hang-ups about the era, great stuff. Swan Valleys chenin blancs' acidity parallels that of Hunter Valley semillon.” James Halliday Wine Companion 2020 - 92 Pts
