Holden Manz Chenin Blanc 2019
2018/19 was a true winemaker’s vintage. A relatively cold and wet winter gave way to late and disorganized flowering. Our vineyard team had to apply plenty of anticipation and thought to deal with the changing and unusual weather which disrupted the regular pattern of activities. A generally cooler vintage has produced wines with exceptional elegance!
An elegant, perfumed example of Chenin Blanc with symphonic notes of white peaches, orange zest, jasmine, citrus, freshly cut Granny Smith apple, white flowers and a whiff of river pebbles. Hints of buttered toast and the faintest expression of oak.
Medium-bodied with zingy acidity. On the palate pear, quince, honeysuckle, peach with lingering flavours of honeydew melon, persimmon and fresh ginger.
