Fairview Darling Chenin Blanc Coastal Region

Fairview Darling Chenin Blanc Coastal Region

€20.95
 
The grapes for this wine are from a bush vine vineyard on the west-facing hills outside Darling, at approximately 300 metres above sea level. The vineyard was planted in 2001 on Richter 99 rootstock, which is tolerant to water stress and is dry farmed. The soil in this vineyard is decomposed granite, differentiating it from the surrounding vineyards which are mainly oakleaf soil; and adding a mineral note to the wines. Vibrant lemon yellow in colour with fruity aromas of pineapple and hints of citrus on the nose. The palate is fresh and crisp with lively, well-balanced acidity and flavours of lime and minerality typical of the Darling vineyards.
