De Trafford Chenin Blanc Reserve 2017

The grapes are produced by top quality, low yielding clones SN220 and SN24 from an 11-year-old, meticulously managed Keermont vineyard. This is a single, 225 litre barrel of Chenin Blanc that took nearly a year to complete its natural ferment and turned out exceptionallywell. We nurtured the wine for a further 9 months in the same barrel before bottling by
hand, unfiltered as usual.

Tasting Notes: Deep straw colour. Fresh dusty apricot nose with complex creaminess from the long lees contact. Honey, beeswax and floral notes. Vibrant creamy palate with layers of flavours and a long, nutty finish.

Winemaker: David Trafford
