Chenin Blanc is Coriole’s principal white variety and was first planted in 1977. Chenin Blanc is an aromatic wine that has great fruit concentration and yet shows an outstanding ability to age. It has proven to be well suited to the moderately warm climate of McLaren Vale.
The nose is lively and attractive, displaying white peach, lychee and honeydew melon. The palate offers a generous platter of tropical and citrus flavours, finishing with fresh and bright acidity. A wine to enjoy now but it will also reward long term cellaring.
Best with light meals; salads, chicken and seafood. Try searing prawns and line caught squid on the BBQ and serve atop a salad of mixed leaves, mango, fresh coriander and mint with a citrus dressing. Best suited to the warmer months, ideally straight from the esky while relaxing on the beach with the sand between your toes.
Beautifully crafted from 5 vineyards scattered throughout McLaren Vale; try it and discover that Chenin really is the ‘better Blanc’!
