Tasting Notes: This blend of Chenin Blanc and Kangun is a very interesting one. The wine has a straw yellow color in the glass. The scent is very special, refreshing with hints of apple, honey, melon and subtle notes of peach. In the mouth intense with balanced acids and exotic fruit, citrus in the medium aftertaste.
