Cellar: Drink now - 3 Years (2023-2026)
ABV: 13%
Closure: Stelvin

A blend of 37% Marsanne, 32% Roussanne, 15% Clairette, 9% Grenache Blanc and 7% Viognier. Brilliant water like core with greenish tinged edges. Aromas of pear, apricot, lime and green apple drift though the nostrils followed by some faint ginger and stony mineral notes. Vibrant pear, lime and green apple fruits are delivered with plenty of intensity and are underpinned by zingy mineral infused acidity. Subtle apricot, ginger and wet stone characters lie on the back half. Finishes long, dry and energetic yet texturally pleasing.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
Alc. 13%

Other Reviews.....
The 2023 Cuvée Juveniles Blanc is sedate and driven by dry extract; it is wider than it is sweet or intense, and the flavor across the palate draws out long over the finish. This is a classy wine here, with lemongrass, chalk, pear skin and green almond. It has an intense mid-palate with very pretty flavor; it's structured like Chenin Blanc. I like it, a lot. 13% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. Drink 2024-2033.
