Varietal: 100% Chenin Blanc Arcane that are biodynamically farmed. The fruit benefits from being fermented spontaneously with native yeasts at a low temperature to preserve and achieve distinct aromas. Then it ages on its total lees for 9 months in French oak barrels.
Taste: A multilayered nose offering scents of ripe yellow fruit, citrus, apple, quince, almond and light notes of honeycomb. On the palate the wine is bright & full-bodied with outstanding cut and grip. Lovely complexity and balanced minerality that leads to long finish.
