This is another excellent rendition of the Avondale Chenin Blanc blend Jonty’s Ducks. Supporting the Chenin Blanc are smaller portions of Roussanne, Muscat de Frontignan, Viognier and Semillon. Fermentation is partly in stainless steel tanks and partly in 600 litre oak barrels, with aging on fine lees for six months. The wine is light straw, lightly floral on the nose, with lemon, lime, yellow apple and melon notes quite prominent. Firm acidity drives the palate, where a light spiciness adds complexity to the fruit, and the finish is crisp and stony. Always some interest here, with great value. • Tasted 2017-02-04 • LCBO id#439554 • Find it at your nearest LCBORARE EARTH WINES (Agent)
