Protea Chenin Blanc 2013

Gentle bouquet of white peach, nectarine and stone fruit with a light white pepper and lime/citrus nuance at the end. Refreshingly succulent and tangy in the mouth, the same stone fruit avours abound. Although vibrant and lively the wine has a rounded, full mouthfeel. Rich and delicious with a long aftertaste.
