Astrolabe The Wrekin Chenin Blanc 2016

Astrolabe The Wrekin Chenin Blanc displays aromas of apples and honeysuckle, with lemon-honey and a little vanilla from its oak ageing. The palate is medium bodied with a focused minerally length and flavours of crisp apple, lemon and peach. The wine is made to age gracefully; weight and honeyed flavours will result from cellaring.
