McGregor Chenin Blanc

The freshness and youth is reflected in the greenish tint of the wine. Lively prominent fruity guava and pineapple with some green apple and pear flavours with a hint of peach. The flavour on the palate is well in balance with the aroma and is crisp, clean and lingering on the aftertaste.
