From the winery:
Aromatically this wine is old world echoing the Loire Valley with perfumed Citron lemon, lemon verbena and core minerality. The palate embodies the core of Chenin Blanc with beautiful floral top notes and a juicy tropical core with passionfruit, guava and mango while backing it with beeswax, clover honey, mineral and wet stone. The wine finishes with generous fruit notes and flavors notably the juicy tangerine, mineral and honeyed texture. Finishing bone dry, the barrel fermentation and sir lies aging in 2, 3 and 4 year old French oak is a constant reminder that restrain provides the measured balance this wine needs to be a hero.
Vinted & Bottled by Vinum Cellars
The 2016 Vinum Cellars White Elephant begins with a pleasing aroma of melon, pear, a little tropical fruit, a touch of toasty oak and maybe even just a hint of buttery note. It's quite inviting.
Taking a sip reveals that wow, this is tasty! Featuring similar flavors to the nose with great depth on the fruit and a creamy and lush mouthfeel this is really easy to drink and very satisfying. It's drinking wonderfully right now and thanks to the barrel aging has plenty of life left as well.
Some really lovely mineral notes lead into the dry, very long, lip-smacking finish. I love it!
