Winemaker's Notes

This crisp, reductively made Chenin Blanc is in true Cederberg Style, showing a powerful nose of tropical melon, grapefruit and lemon peel. Five months of lees contact created a mouth tingling crispness with a lingering finish. Superb food compatibility.

Critical Acclaim

"Sea air is the most prevelent scent in this wine-a subtle saline aroma that gets you salivating. There's a kiwi-berry fruit marked by herbal verbena notes, the wine's viscosity areated bu high acidity. It has the potential to age for at least 5 years, but would be delicious now with a beet and goat cheese salad."
