Opstal Chenin Blanc 2019
Opstal Chenin Blanc 2019
It has a great balance of zippy freshness to go with its aromatic complexity. Attractive aromas of pineapple, pear and citrus are well held together with a subtle spice and leesy complexity from the 8 months that a component of this wine spent in large French oak Foudres.
