The Big Easy Chenin Blanc is punchy and concentrated in the dry 2018 vintage. Ripe kumquat, summer melon, straw and hints of spice on the nose lead to a deep, fruity palate. It is crisp and fresh, but offers a soft and creamy mouthfeel. The fruit is ripe and easy-going, and the palate is dry and savoury, suggesting excellent versality with food.
The 2018 harvest season will be remembered as the drought season. We have been working hard to adapt our viticultural techniques during the past 3 years to help the vineyards cope optimally with the heat and limited irrigation. The drought was further buffered by a surprisingly cooler season and the vines were able to produce smaller bunches with smaller grapes. This resulted in wines that appear to have great vintage specific concentration and elegance.
