Asara Vineyard Collection Chenin Blanc
The name Asara is in honour of Astar, Asis and Asase, the North African gods of earth, sun and sky. This symbol of balance and harmony of nature is reflected in the estate’s wines. To create the Asara Vineyard Collection Chenin Blanc, carefully selected Chenin Blanc grapes are pressed and go into 22 barrels. The yields are relatively low, berry sizes small and the bunches fairly loose, making for concentration and intensity.
On the nose: rich with abundant ripe pear and pineapple with nuances of honeysuckle.
On the palate: rich and slightly oily, with complex layered fruit, apricot and peach, on mouth-filling acidity, and the oak imparts a delicate mouth filling structure.
