To make the Protea Chenin Blanc, our winemakers step smartly aside and allow the essence of the remarkable, too often underappreciated Chenin Blanc grape to arrive in the glass with rich fruit and verve.
The blend: 100% Chenin Blanc
Notes: The Protea Chenin Blanc is pale lemon in appearance. It shows aromas of fresh citrus fruit and honeysuckle. On the palate, you’ll find crisp citrus flavor with tangy lemon vibrancy that is matched by more of the nectarine and stone fruit fleshiness in the mouth. Lively with lovely light body and a gentle persistence.
