Most SA Grenache Blancs are grown bush vine style- producing rich, full wines with a well-balanced stony minerality with strong appeal for drinkers who enjoy Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.
Lovely fleshiness with fresh, crisp acidity, restrained aromas of citrus peel, pear drops, candied apple and a touch of baking spice.
