Very bright in the glass with an almost clear hue and a platinum shimmer on the surface. The first impression of this wine is the bright and mouthwatering acidity on the nose, which is followed by lime zest, peach blossom, cotton candy and a slightly oxidative note often found in Chenin. The palate has a silky and creamy texture, with notes of winter melon, almonds, lemon curd, clover honey, pear and burnt sugar. The finish is a long bath of smoky vanilla, hinting at oak, though this wine saw none. Isn't it great when the grape does the talking?
