2010 Ipso Facto Chenin. Margaret River. 12.5%
Don’t presume that this is just another mass produced, sweet Chenin from “down south”.
Simply put, this is serious Chenin. Made properly.
Nashi pears, starfruits and a small hint of ginger in there, crisp, tangy with a zesty bite. Mouth watering acidity on the finish. Tasty and refreshing.
The wine is whole bunch pressed, allowed to wild ferment in barrel and lees stirred. It sees 9 months in French oak as well.
