Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc is Coriole's principal white variety and was first planted in 1977. Chenin Blanc is an aromatic wine that has great fruit concentration and yet shows an outstanding ability to age.

90 Points. Pleasant, fruit-driven white for the most part though the dry, chalky finish elevates it. Not to be sneezed at, for early drinking, and may well surprise given a few years in a cool, dark place. - James Halliday Wine Companion

91 Points. A very stylish, focused and flavoursome chenin whose faintly tropical and peachy aromas reveal undertones of citrus and chalkiness. It’s long and tangy, with a lustrous presence of crystalline flavour that plays down the palate towards a bracingly brisk and frisky finish. Long and balanced, it’s underpinned by a faint minerality. - Jeremy Oliver Wine Annual

"A stalwart white for Coriole, this represents terrific value for the crisp white lover. Aromas of freshly sliced green apples and pears with hints of lemon citrus - the palate moves into more tropical territory with zesty sweet fruit crunch to finish." Nick Stock - Wine 100 Magazine
