2019 VDF 'Fragile' (Magnum)
100% Chenin Blanc – for this wine, they select the most yellow/golden grapes from all plots. They usually take between 3-5 visits to select the perfect grapes. Aged in old barrels for 12 months.
Light colour. Clean nose, smells so good. Fresh apples, brioche and honey. Little ozone notes in the background. To taste it is textural and super smooth. Creamy, with apples, lime, honeydew and a mineral schisty finish. Pure and juicy with really nice lingering acidity. The fruit is plush and showy but not too ripe. Rich but fresh. Really superb balance, and overall an approachable style that will please everyone. Day 2 – beautiful texture and contrast between honey, lime and freshness. Great balance and very easy to drink.
