The Vioneers Orpheus and Raven Old Bush Vine Chenin Blanc 2021
Produced from 46 year old bush vines in Durbanville. Melon, citrus fruit, honey with a hint of cedar spice (from terroir as well as barrel maturation) is present on the nose. The mouthfeel is luscious and rich due to spontaneous malolactic fermentation and the mellowing effect of oak. The riper picking point also contributed to palette weight. A lingering aftertaste with vibrant acidity is the showcase of the natural concentration of old bush vine fruit.
