Ashton Kelder Chenin Blanc 2010

A dry and very crisp wine with flinty green characters on the nose and hints of fig and tropical fruits. The sweet middle palate and dry finish ensures a well balanced taste which complements the bouquet.

This wine's pleasant aroma and flintiness will be ideal with a tapas platter or game carpaccio.
