This Big Easy is 100% Chenin Blanc and shimmering in 2017. It shows early promise of another fine Cape vintage that offers elegant ripeness and fine freshness. It is dominated by richly textured, pure fruit of apricots, pineapple and granny smith. More classical notes of lanolin and wet earth lay underneath, adding further complexity and layers. A hint of spice and citrus acidity brings on a long and lively finish. Rather opulent and powerful now, the Big Easy Chenin Blanc will ease into its swing over the next 2 years.
