2018 Sigurd Chenin Blanc

Clare Valley, South Australia

Rated a smoking 4.3 on Vivino, think citrus, pineapple and honey. Very drinkable. Notes from Sigurd: Chenin Blanc (100%). Sourced from one of the most northern blocks in Clare Valley, this Chenin vineyard is around 56 years old. Two thirds of the grapes are whole bunch pressed (this means and a small amount fermented on skins for 12 days. The juice was transferred into an old 500L French oak puncheons and a couple second use Russian oak Puncheons. Left to ferment in oak to dryness for about 7 months, racked from oak once and a small amount of sulphur added before bottling.
