Villion Henning Chenin Blanc 2020

Tasting Notes

Self-assured entry of captivating aromas of dried white pear, stone-fruit apricot and peach spiciness with hints of quince slices in fresh cream. A decadent layer of salted, crushed caramel reveals the wine’s spontaneously fermented nature and completes the fullness of this intriguing, heritage Chenin Blanc.

A bright entry which immediately melts away into a confident, broad, creamy mouthfeel. The finish is one of precision and perfect balance, supported by a pristine, oyster-shell and crushed stone, flinty texture.
