Astrolabe Vineyards Wrekin Vineyard Chenin Blanc


The 2019 vintage (5*) has a powerful presence. A single-vineyard wine, hand-harvested in the Southern Valleys, it was partly (40 per cent) fermented with indigenous yeasts in seasoned French oak puncheons. Richly scented, it is full-bodied, with deep, vibrant, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, and a long, dry (2.3 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Still very youthful, it should be at its best 2023+.
