Vinification: After picking, the grapes are carefully sorted before gently pressing into the tank. The juice collected is settled before fermentation at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve and retain natural fruity characters. This is followed by long ageing in tank on yeast lees to attain complexity. Another component of this wine is fermented and aged in French barrels before blending back while filtration & bottling.
Tasting Notes: The York Chenin Blanc is one of the few Indian Chenin Blancs to be partially fermented and matured in French Oak Barrels. This wine is semi-dry with aromas of fresh, tropical fruits like guava, apricot and pineapple that are unique to the York house style. The oak aged component of this wine gives it good structure and complexity on the mid palate with very balanced acids and long flavor profile.
