The 2015 spent time on its lees in concrete tanks and old casks - this is an important part of the maturation and gives incredible texture and palate weight to the wine. The aromas are flinty with honey, orange blossom and white stone fruit notes. The 2015 vintage was characterised by a long ripening period, very dry summer but mild ripening conditions which has the effect of good ripe flavours and slightly lower acids than in previous years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Secateurs Chenin Blanc has a slightly waxy, toffee apple-scented bouquet that perhaps lacks the complexity of some of the other vintages that I have tasted in the past. The palate is nicely balanced, quite primal in the mouth at first but settling down later on with lime cordial and peachy notes that deliver plenty of flavor. Drink this entry Chenin Blanc over the next 3-4 years.
