**Sold as a 6-Pack, with 1 bottle FREE - 7 bottles total**
The warmer climate and granite based soils around Fairview Estate are an ideal terroir for this beautifully expressive Chenin Blanc.
The tank fermented component of this wine highlights the fruit flavours of Chenin Blanc and the barrel component adds the weight and structure on the palate, giving good potential for improvement in the bottle.
Fragrant citrus and tropical fruit notes and a fresh rounded palate with gentle oaking.
