Villion Henning Chenin Blanc 2018
Captivating aromas of freshly cut ripe yellow Kakamas peach fruit, with layers of dry fruit, vanilla pod and caramel foam. Fruit from this 37-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.
