    October 30, 2020 - Friday at the strand (Strand Cellars, Croydon): Quite lanolin, wax polish, a little herbal underpin and lemon peel and pith. In the mouth it has medium plus intensity acidity, the citrus goes hand in hand with that herbal underpin. Fairly short with a little chalky texture on the mid palate. Meh.

    February 19, 2020 - Nice chenin. Not very complex but nicely buttered.

    February 14, 2020 - Chenin Blanc aromas with lime and honey. Quite full bodied and juicy. Lacks the complexity and concentration of Chidaine's best wines.

    October 1, 2019 - Crisp and modestly acidic, with white flowers and white fruit, pleasant finish. Paired well with Pad Kee Mao, but not as well as Donnhoff’s estate Riesling, ‘16.

    September 24, 2019 - Bibendum Portfolio Tasting 2019: Apple and pear on the nose. Sweetness shows through on the palate, though it has decent balance. Medium length, give this a couple more years?
