18pts/20 (93/100pts)
Made using fruit from old vines, this cooler-climate Chenin Blanc has a delightful lemon meringue pie palate, with good mouthfeel, lovely savoury notes and a bright line of limey acidity. Waxy leaves, citrus and pastry crust are evident on the nose, and there’s lemon curd on the finish.
