This wine is clear and bright gold with a green tinge. The citrus start with lime and develop in the mouth to grapefruit. Quince and apple flavours add to the complexity with the wood so well integrated that only a hint of vanilla is evident. A rich concentrated mouth-feel, flowery mid-palate, and layers of glorious tropical fruit culminate in a long, complex, lingering finish.
The wine that has helped Teddy Hall win the South African Chenin Blanc challenge three years consecutively, and make him South African Winemaker of the Year. Made in true Loire Valley style, the wine uses only the free-run juice from hand-selected grapes, and is barrel fermented with six months spent on the lees to gain richness and depth of flavor. When tasted, layers of concentrated fruit (citrus, quince, apricot, green apple, grapefruit) and floral flavors mingle on the palate, and culminate in a lingering, spicy finish.
