The grapes come from the slopes of the Loire Valley known as "The Garden of France". Very aromatic with pleasant flower and fruit fragrances recalling the flower of the vine and the fruit of the Sauvignon. On the palate it reveals a freshness and vivacity characteristic of grapes harvested at good maturity.
Chenin Blanc is much the preserve of South African winemakers these days, but its origins lie in the Loire Valley. Savennières and Coteaux de Layon are perhaps the most famous Loire Chenins, but not always entirely ‘price accessible’. Vouvray provides an elegant and very affordable solution. The Vieux Vauvert is medium-dry (which is to say, there’s just a hint of sweetness) with a lively fresh finish. This wine has a plethora of flavours to share: among them, ripe apple, quince, lime and citrus blossom.
