Protea Chenin Blanc 2011

Appealing apricot and granadilla aromas with a touch of dry grass adding complexity. Fruited round entry with lovely peach and loquat flavour. There's a richness and weight to the palate with some deftly handled wood influence contributing a light biscuit element, superbly balanced by fresh acidity. Nicely fleshed mid-palate with some muscle tone and definition. Good length of flavour.
