AYAMA Chenin Blanc 2012

A straw appearance with excellent varietal expressions. Very intense aromas, which range from country hay, floral, tropical fruit and apricots to spice. Plenty of ripe fruit flavours. The hints of residual sugar are well balanced by acidity. Intense rounded mouth feel, ripe pear opulence, long finish. Fresh.

Ideal served at: 12 - 14° C

A good option is fish of any kind as is grilled chicken, cheese soufflé, seafood pasta and gammon.
