Mariëtte Chenin blanc 2017

Mariëtte Chenin blanc 2017
Mariëtte Chenin blanc 2017

A pale straw colour with a bright golden tinge. Soft floral and tropical fruit aromas such as honeysuckle and melon on the nose, as well as lightly wooded elegance with undertones of vanilla and spice. The palate is loaded with stone fruit, figs and a of hint citrus, which culminate in a crisp acidity and long finish. A truly well-balanced beauty that makes this a winemakers’ selection.

Interesting fact
Back in the eighties the plant material got mixed up because the block consists of two different clones. We marked the clone with the open bunches which do not rot and only use that for this special wine. The experts believe it is the first plant material of the now popular clone 24.

FoodSuggest Being a rich and elegant wine, it will pair beautifully with creamy dishes, think chicken with a creamy mushroom sauce or rich fish dishes like salmon and croute. Mariëtte Chenin blanc and scallops is also a match made in heaven or try it with a ripe Camembert.
