Donkiesbaai Steen Chenin Blanc 2019

£23.95 incl. VAT

6 in stock

Donkiesbaai Steen Chenin Blanc has a subtle note of frangipani provides a top note to intense fruit aromas of citrus with lots of white peach, nectarine and white pineapple. The intensity of fruit follows through on the palate, uplifted by a
racy acidity. Flavours of lemon and lime are more prominent, with cape gooseberry, pineapple, peach and a creamy texture of lemon curd providing body. Fresh, layered and balanced with a dry yet textured mouthfeel and a zesty citrus finish.
