Esk Valley Chenin Blanc 2011

Availability: Out of stock

£11.64

Quick Overview

Esk Valley Chenin Blanc is a single vineyard wine from the Moteo Terraces Vineyard, The fruit was lightly pressed and then fermented in both tank and aged oak. The new wines were then left on lees untill blending and bottling. This is a medium-bodied white wine with classic Chenin Blanc characters of honey, quince and stonefruit with a mineral-like acidity. The palate is full with a touch of residual sugar balancing the acidity. Although enjoyable as a young wine, our experience with previous vintages suggests that the wine will develop further complexity with two to 10 years ageing. Ideal with seafood, Asian and Indian-style dishes.

Details

Esk Valley Chenin Blanc is a single vineyard wine from the Moteo Terraces Vineyard, situated on a river terrace above the Tutaekuri River near Moteo Pa. This is a free draining site with a northerly aspect, ideal for the production of quality Chenin Blanc. The fruit was lightly pressed and then gravity fed to both tank and aged oak for fermentation. The tank ferment was stopped with a small quantity of residual sugar to balance the natural acidity of the finished blend. The new wines were then left on lees untill blending and bottling. This is a medium-bodied white wine with classic Chenin Blanc characters of honey, quince and stonefruit with a mineral-like acidity. The palate is full with a touch of residual sugar balancing the acidity. Although enjoyable as a young wine, our experience with previous vintages suggests that the wine will develop further complexity with two to 10 years ageing. Ideal with seafood, Asian and Indian-style dishes.
