Rudera Chennin Blanc Noble Late Harvest

The grapes were lightly crushed and the juice was allowed to settle overnight. New French barriques were filled and allowed to ferment with the natural yeast, using the indigenous microflora on the grapes. Fermentation took place in a 14˚C cellar but actual fermentation temperatures were not monitored. Rudera Chenin blanc Noble Late Harvest was finished with fermentation two months later and was sterile filtered before being bottled. 72 cases were sold at the 2005 Auction. Tasting Notes Distinct yellow hue; very rich honey bouquet. Amazingly full, scented nose with waxy ,mouth watering fruit salad and apples. Rich mouth-feel and layers of tropical flavours. The delicate yet firm smoky, oaky flavour expanding in the mouth. Fairly sweet and full; lovely texture and good length.
