Blackwater Wine Blanc 2017
Blackwater Wine range
Category: White blends, wooded, dry
Mainly chenin, barrel fermented, with clairette & palomino both skin-fermented, then oak-aged 10 months. 2017 attractive pale orange glow, more vinous than fruity with savoury acid backbone, rumble of tannin. Very tasty; happy partner to richer fish or poultry dishes. Occasional release, last was 2014 (4 stars, 88 pts) chenin, semillon.
