Grape: 100% Chenin Blanc

A clean and crisp skin contact wine with superb minerality. You get light floral notes of jamine and herbs on the nose with the palate adding orange, citrus and crisp green apple, perhaps a little ginger spice to boot. Fresh and vibrant, this is a really elegant and balanced orange wine and a great place to start if you are new to the style.
