You have to love good Chenin from the West. Even the nose is something else. White nectarines and memories of fragrant bath soap dominate the aromas and the the palate is an explosion of richness and texture. More stone fruit on the palate, this time white peaches and nectarines completely in balance. I could drink this for days. Perfect for summer salads and grilled fish or chicken.
"The wine smells of jasmine blossom, ruby grapefruit and freshly picked red Johnathon apples straight from the tree. Packham pears, Kumamoto oysters and beeswax fill the palate but it’s the texture that grabs your full attention. The balance at play between the juicy, saline tang and the soft, creamy, flinty notes drives home the Rocket’s Vineyard pedigree. Classic Rocket’s Vineyard Chenin Blanc at its best." - Rob Mann
"Talk about presence. This isn't your average white wine, nor indeed your average chenin blanc. Apple, pear and apricot flavours are at the heart of it but it's the dry, chalky, grippy feel of it, the out-and-out length, and the firm, uncompromised structure. It's flavoursome and mouth-watering at once. Terrific."
