Astrolabe Southern Valleys Chenin Blanc Sec (2020)

Certified organic, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) was hand-harvested in the Wrekin Vineyard, in the upper Brancott Valley, and tank-fermented. Fresh, lively and youthful, it is full-bodied, with peachy, citrusy flavours, showing excellent delicacy and depth, and a finely poised, crisp, dryish (6.5 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Already very approachable, it's a tightly structured wine, well worth cellaring to 2023+.
