This is decent Chenin Blanc and fair value at £8.99. It is significantly cheaper at Morrisons if you have one near you. Once again I must express my wish that it had ‘Fairly Traded’ credentials…
Tasting notes: Primary notes of stone fruits. Balanced acidity. A little length of finish, a little complexity, Crisp, dry wine. Predominantly citrus fruit notes, a little tropical fruit and white stone fruit notes. Unoaked.
