The Big Easy Chenin is punchy and concentrated in the dry 2018 vintage. Ripe kumquat, summer melon, straw and hints of spice on the nose lead to a deep, fruity palate. It is crisp and fresh, but offers a soft and creamy mouthfeel. The fruit is ripe and easy-going, but the palate ends dry and savoury, suggesting excellent versatilty with food. The finish is long and nutty, maintaining notes of citrus throughout.
