VONDELING Petit Chenin Blanc 2021 12,5%
2021 Michelangelo - Gold.
Vinmageren skriver: The wine has a striking, pale lime colour. The nose has pronounced tropical aromas of guava, passion fruit, and melon with an interesting floral, potpourri twist. On the palate, you can enjoy white peach, kiwi fruit, and pink lady apple, underpinned by a delightful flinty freshness and delicate citrus finish.
Food Pairing: Full and fresh, this wine will pair well with prawn risotto, lobster, soft cheeses, and sunshine.
Beautiful mature Chenin Blanc planted on south-facingslopes and composed exclusively of shy bearing, well-weathered granite soils. These vineyards produce a low average crop of only 9 tons per hectare, which ensures a tremendous concentration of fruit flavours on the palate. All the fruit is hand-picked on taste at optimum ripeness, ranging from 21-23ºB.
Our grapes are picked in the cool, early hours of the morning and processed immediately. The grapes are destemmed and chilled further before they are pressed.This short supply from vine to press ensures minimal degradation of the fruit aromas. The free-run juice and press juices are kept separate from each other and treated according to their individual character. The wines are coldfermented in small stainless-steel tanks and are 100%unwooded. This method locks in freshness and vigor, which elevates the natural aromatics. After fermentation, the wines are matured on the yeast lees to promote mouth feeland creaminess, before they are blended, stabilized, and bottled.
