Dekker’s Valley Seraphic 2016

£11.95

An unwooded blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Viognier that was co-fermented to provide an integrated expression of fruit purity. Floral hints of peach and apricot blossom on the nose from the aromatic characteristics of Viognier give way to apple crispness on the initial palate, following through to the full ripeness of Canteloup melon.
