Chenin Blanc 

75cl * Vegan * 13.0% ABV * Loire Valley, France 

Sometimes we forget that there's more to the Loire Valley than the familiar names of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume and their wines made from Sauvignon Blanc. This wine comes from a family team, two brothers and a son who have a wealth of experience, great vineyards and a desire to make the best that the appellation can offer. Grapes are harvested during the early daylight hours, before the sun has time to heat up the vines; this is essential in order to keep the bright, fresh character that one looks for in a sweeter style of Vouvray. The wine is kept on fine lees in cool cellars that are hollowed into the chalky rock strata, thus optimising both freshness and complexity.

The purity and freshness of flavour is key to this wine as is the balance between the natural acidity and natural sugar. This succulent, textural, complex wine has notes of apple tart and quince jelly, which combine beautifully with pear and vanilla, leading to a delicious candied peel finish. A flexible, medium-dry food wine to enjoy with white meats, seafood or a large selection of cheeses.

Silver Medal winner at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2023 "Elegant honeysuckle with apple and pear aromas, a rounded beeswax texture, a bright acidity and a caramel finish." 93/100 points (Decanter Panel)
