    2022 Aphelion 'Pir' Chenin Blanc

    • $40.00


    Variety: Chenin Blanc from the Blewitt Springs district of McLaren Vale.

    Summary: This wine displays a wonderful balance of fresh acidity and textural interest from fermentation in both oak and tank. Ripe stone fruit characters flow seamlessly across the palate.

    Tasting Note: White peach, red apple and flint show on the aroma with cinnamon adding complexity. The palate is a textural delight with a great depth of flavour – time on ferment lees has provided an attractive creamy character to the wine. Use of French oak provides a touch of astringency on the finish. A rounded and complete wine, crisp acidity cleans the finish and provides great length.

    Goes With Food: A rich baked salmon dish with green herb sauce would complement the palate roundness of this wine.

    Goes With Cheese: A triple cream Camembert will match the body of this wine and complement its flinty aspects.
