Beaumont Family Wines Leo’s Whole Bunch Chenin Blanc 2017

This is the second version of a whole bunch fermentation that I have put in bottle. The first one was made in 2011, the year that my son Leo was born. Since then I have experimented with this style of wine every year. The 2017 is the first vintage I thought should go into bottle.

The grapes were in perfect condition. The wine spent 8 days fermenting on the skins, was then pressed off and taken to barrel for the end of fermentation. Matured on gross lees for 18 months in a new barrel.

Tasting notes: Light, straw colour from the time on the skins. Aromas of spicy and floral fruit. Hint of oak. Inviting palate of fresh fruit, spice and grainy texture. Leaves your mouth watering for the next sip.
