Villion Henning Chenin Blanc 2017

Pale golden straw in colour. Clear and brilliant.

Tasting Notes

Captivating aromas of freshly cut ripe yellow Kakamas peach fruit, with layers of dry fruit, vanilla pod and caramel foam. Fruit from this 34-year-old vineyard underlies the complexity and richness in flavour profile.

Mouth filling and layered texture with a lively freshness and delightful minerality. Salty quince taste reveals the spontaneous fermented nature of the wine.
