GranMonte Spring Chenin Blanc 2019
GranMonte Spring Chenin Blanc is breezy and inviting with a soft impression. The nose is a burst of tropical fruit and hints of pear and citrus. Crisp on the palate with a zesty acidity. Sweet pomelo and tropical melon with hints of white pears and lime citrus. Closes in a refreshing finish.
100% Chenin Blanc. The fruit for this wine comes from GranMonte's 15 hectare estate vineyard that lies in Asoke valley, Thailand, 350 metres above sea level. The vineyard operates with a precision farming system called ‘Smart Vineyard’, which incorporates a microclimate monitoring system. The system greatly assists their ‘tropical’ vineyard management to achieve the best possibly quality and higher yield of grapes in this unconventional viticulture climate.
Careful hand harvesting from the interior of the canopy with shading from the sun to maintain high acidity and delicate aromas. Harvesting in the cool winter nights of February to preserve the freshness of the juice. The grapes then go through a hand sorting before destemming and crushing.
