Avondale Jonty's Ducks Pekin White 2020

Mainly Chenin blanc in the blend with Rousanne, Viognier and Sémillon. Nose with limes, grapefruit, quince. Wide pallet with ripe fruit aromas and intense fraicheur. Owner Johnathan Grieve employs a 'posse' of ducks, which patrol the vineyard looking for and destroying snails, which eat the vines. The ducks are an eco-friendly way to avoid using harmful chemical poisons to kill pests.

Food pairing:
Enjoy with salads, fine fish dishes or delightful as alternative for a Chardonnay as an aperitif.

Decanter - 95pts
Fresh, opulent perfume, floral notes and wild herbs. Racy, focused citrus essence balancing ripe nectarine, pear and delicate brioche. Great blend.
