Bellingham Citrus Grove Chenin Blanc 2012

Scratch the orange strip on the back label for a burst of citrus scents that will have your mouth watering for a taste of what's inside!

Light gold with bright green glimmers packed with punchy citrus aromas of orange, tangerine and a tropical twist of honeydew melon and pineapple that translates on the palate as a surge of key lime and clementine flavour brushed with minerality on the zesty mouth watering finish.

Fresh and enticing for best enjoyment within the first year or two of vintage. Serve ice cold with or without food. A great match with sushi, Thai chicken wraps, Caesar salad or crumbed calamari.
