THE VARIETY

Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc produces wines that range from bone-dry to sweet. Although the flavour of Chenin Blanc varies, the grape is known for its acidity, floral nature and honey and stone-fruit profile. Chenin thrives in cooler climates like the Loire Valley, where its acidity is preserved. On the other hand, warmer climates like South Africa and Australia are producing dry-style Chenin Blanc of outstanding quality. Fresh and fruity Chenin Blanc pairs well with vegetable dishes or salads; oaked versions pair with rich fish or cream-based chicken entrées; and sweet Chenin Blanc naturally matches desserts or serves as a balancing counterpart to rich, pungent cheeses.
THE REGION

Swan Valley and Perth Hills

The Swan Valley is located 25 minutes north of Perth, Western Australia and is home to some of the oldest vineyards in Australia with the first commercial vintage being released in 1834 by Thomas Waters. The unique warm Mediterranean climate and nutrient rich, diverse soils coupled with alluvial plains has played a perfect host to a wide-range of plantings, including Verdelho, Shiraz, Grenache, Chardonnay and, of course, Chenin Blanc.
