Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc 2018

Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc 2018


A polished light yellow gold colour, this wine has a bouquet of citrus blossom with hazelnut, with hints of cut grass, spring flowers, raw honey, and vanilla. The entry on the palate is soft and light at first, but then opens up with pure fruit flavours of ripe peach and apple and a touch of marzipan and vanilla. Lovely zippy acidity allows for a long clean textured finish with a lingering aftertaste of rich fruit and butterscotch.

Only 2855 bottles and 52 magnums of this wine were produced.

In the vineyard

All grapes used in producing this wine are sourced from the Riverside vineyard on Keermont. Small parcels of grapes are selected according to optimal ripeness and harvested by hand.
