Flirty MAAN Chenin Blanc 2016
Flirty MAAN Chenin Blanc embodies all the virtues that make us smile knowingly when we hear the term "flirty"; fresh, playful, cheeky, and even a little bit too easy.
A bright, crisp, fruit-driven wine with notes of white peach & orange zest, intermingled with the floral aromas of apple blossom & jasmine.
All of this equates to a drink of subtle complexity and texture, encapsulated within a deceptively smash-able vino.
With loads of stone fruit and melon aromas like white nectarine, peach, honeydew and rockmelon. As well as a subtle lift of floral notes such as white jasmine and apple blossom. Brought together by a crisp acidic backbone, and a refreshing dry finish.
This wine has something for all white lovers: It's seemingly straightforward and smashable, but those who like a bit of complexity will be rewarded by the restrained texture and interest built through subtle use of skin contact.
