MENU's Wine of the Week. De Morgenzon Chenin blanc 2016

Richness and a hint of honey on the nose, with peach, pear drops and apple notes
Fresh lemon & lime flavours excite initially on the palate, then nectarine and pear develop in complexity in layers
Lees and some light wood show on the end.
The wine is from old bush vines and has been matured on the lees in both stainless steel tanks and old oak barrels for a short time. Two years maturity has made this wine so complex and versatile. The current vintage is 2018
It was the perfect match with this week’s recipe of Red Pepper Tuna Pasta with Lemon
