Organised Chaos Chenin Blanc 2022

$33.90 inc. GST

Tasting Note: Intense citrus and pear with background notes of stonefruit and lychee. Rich and textural, with gorgeous and refreshing green apple acidity. Juicy grapefruit lingers on the palate with a fine, pithy phenolic. Our Chenin Blanc is grown by Ian and Linda Quinn at Two Terraces Vineyard, on the Mangatahi Terraces, 15km further inland from the Gimblett Gravels. The Managatahi Terraces are ancient river terraces formed over thousands of years by the Ngaruroro River, which now flows more than 30m below the vineyard. These terraces are made up of greywacke and gravel under volcanic, stony, silt based, topsoil.

Winemaking Notes: Pressed after 6 hours on skins and settled over night. Racked, inoculated with QA23 yeast, and fermented at 13-15oC before being stopped just before dry. Left on lees for 5 months.
