Waterford Estate, Old Vine Project Chenin Blanc 2018
From vines planted in 1966, this maiden vintage shows wonderful purity and elegance with flavours of peach, honey and pithy stone fruit.
Very well-textured, displaying fruit complexity and creaminess on the palate.
Waterford has been making Chenin Blanc since its establishment under the Pecan Stream label.
For the last 4 years there has been great effort to secure old vine Chenin Blanc grapes sourced from the Stellenbosch region. This enables us to make world-class wines under the Waterford label.
2018 is the maiden vintage of this wine. Showing wonderful purity and elegance. Flavours of peach, honey and pithy stone fruit. Very well textured pallet with fruit complexity and creaminess.
A great match for seafood risotto.
