Concentrated lime-green color. Intense and very attractive nose of honeydew melon, ripe white peach, some waxy tones and a little bit of steely minerality. The wine is ripe, full-bodied and firm on the palate with concentrated flavors of honeydew melon and cantaloupe, some beeswax, a little bit of ripe red apple, light stony mineral tones, a floral hint of apple blossom and a touch of quinine bitterness. Balanced, moderately high acidity. Dry, lively and quite ripe finish with concentrated flavors of ripe red apples, some steely minerality, a little bit of white peach and a hint of cantaloupe.

A very lovely Chenin Blanc from the ripe and juicy end. Lots of fruit, ripeness and sense of concentration here, yet the wine retains impeccable sense of freshness and balance. It's definitely not a lean and mineral Loire Chenin, but it isn't heavy nor fat either. There's a lot to love here already this young, but I have no doubts the wine will continue to improve for more than just a handful of years.
