Grape Variety:

Chenin Blanc

Mullineux, Granite, Chenin Blanc, 2017

Tasting Note:

The Granite Chenin opens up with beautiful floral, rocky violet aromas, stone fruit and ripe waxy lemons. Creamy and full bodied with lovely generous fleshy fruit on the mid palate finishing with flint, yellow fruit and white honey on the finish. Clear, sumptuous and inviting. Sourced from vines planted on decomposed, friable granite on the Paardeberg mountain. Completely dry farmed giving a phenolic edge to finish that serves to add freshness, combined with 20-30 year old vines raised in neutral 500L French casks for 11 months before bottling.
