Peel Estate 2006 Premium White
Another wonderful curio from Will Nairn - a blend of Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc that's a mere 7 years young. Its half price offering is by no means a reflection of the wine, rather that they just want to clear the final small quantity. And I can never resist a bargain gem like this, no matter how left of centre it may be. It's in perfect condition with a little aged development and plenty of acid. Beautifully nailed on the label description: "Rich honeyed Chenin Blanc and herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc blended together to form one marvelous mouthful of flavour". This is a complex, intriguing wine for fans of mature whites.
