Winemaker Notes: Attractive pale yellow colour. Fresh dusty apricot and ripe melon on the nose at first with lemon, honey and floral notes. Soft though elegantly textured and complex palate with a moderately rich mid palate and a long, creamy finish. Excellent with rich fish, seafood and sushi. Already showing a lot of complexity - drink now to 2025.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

An exceptional vintage. After the hot and dry 2016 season and a dry and warm autumn, we feared insufficient build-up of reserves in the vines and possible uneven budbreak, but we had a good normal wet and cold winter and the sudden warm weather in spring helped to provide more even budbreak than expected. The growing season was quite dry and mild with moderate to lower vigour and healthy growth, producing a slightly smaller crop than usual with small berries. We had ideal cooler weather during harvest time with cool nights and no substantial heatwaves. We picked some of our Chenin just before a heavy downpour at the end of January, but the balance enjoyed the moisture relief, which we picked over the following 3 weeks. An elegant, promising vintage, similar to 2007.
