Pale yellow in colour. The bouquet is elegant, lighted perfumed example of Chenin Blanc with symphonic notes of Jasmine, apple blossom and a whiff of peach. The palate has well balanced acidity. Expect the senses to find quince, pear with lingering flavors of peach and melon. Hints of oak with characters of fresh brioche. Long on the finish.
Holden Manz Chenin Blanc
Expertly crafted, aged in old oak barriques which adds texture rather than the toasty flavour associated with new oak. This is a very pure, yet complex, expression of Chenin with notes of green apple, pear and white flowers.
