Ray just loves our chenin!
WA wine writer, Ray Jordan, extols the virtues of our Tuart Block 2015 chenin blanc.
Chenin blanc is a fabulous variety in WA. It's made in a number of regions, including the Swan Valley, where its natural acidity is a key to its freshness and longevity. Loads of juicy, tropical chenin blanc flavour in this totally fruit-driven fresh, young style. Citrusy notes on the nose with a trace of passionfruit. The palate is tight and crisp, with a distinct linear feel supporting the vibrant tropical fruit flavours. Worth keeping a little for a few years as the variety does age rather well.
