Laibach Wooded Chenin Blanc 1997

This is an extremely complex, mouthfilling wine with a crisp, fresh finish. It has an intense toasted and nutty character with some tropical and citrus flavours. The wine is full bodied and the wood, the wood, backs up the fruit and wine balance assures that the wood character does overpower the wine.
