A dry winter combined with an early spring led to an early bud break and this continued with warmer than normal temperatures through January. This meant one of the earliest harvests in memory, however with careful planning Cleefs were able to get all the fruit in at optimum ripeness while still preserving healthy natural acidities.
This 2016 Chenin Blanc has strong lychee, citrusy and guava aromas on the nose with ripe pineapple and peach flavours that follow through on the palate. A fresh and fruity style of Chenin Blanc with a long, clean and crisp finish. Enjoy this delicious wine with fish or shellfish. It also works well with salads & picnics, mild creamy cheeses.
