The Big Easy is 100% Chenin Blanc from various low-yielding vineyards across the Western Cape.
It opens with sun-kissed daisies, honey-suckle, cantaloupe and kumquat notes.
This upbeat and complex nose leads to a more mineral and serious palate, that exudes elegance and poise.
Two months of lees aging gives added depth, as well as contributes to a round, comforting and soft texture.
Medium bodied with a racy finish, this Chenin Blanc is typically easy and rather delicious even in its youth.
