12x 2017 HAPPS 'iSeries' Chenin Blanc.
A fantastic wine for beach and BBQ's, it is fresh & fruity and the slight sweetness is well matched with crisp acidity.

Chenin is a generous and well-behaved vine that still delivers when pruned very hard. Usually free of disease its only disadvantage is that the fruit is prone to sunburn and shrivel. It produces a simple elegant and appealing wine. This is an off-dry style which makes it a perfect pairing with creamy seafood, summer salads, poached pears and spicy Asian dishes.

This wine is a clear, pale, golden straw in colour. Apples and pear greet the nose, followed by hints of lime, cumquat and sweet herbs. The fruit sweetness is wonderfully present and carries seamlessly through to the palate.

Estimate $190-200
