The Tiernes Chenin blanc displays herbal aromatics with dried fynbos, honey blossom and aniseed. The profile diverted slightly from its usual acidic, citrus fruit-direction but has rather concentrated and complex quince, white pear and golden delicious apple flavours. The textures are typically Swartland with lanolin and beeswax with a rigid structure. A soft acidity adds depth and still keeps the wine fresh with flavours lingering for a long finish. This is a Chenin that would age exceptionally well.
