'Woodcote' Chenin Blanc 2012
Woody Nook at Woodcote is the name of the restaurant in the Oxfordshire village of Woodcote which provides a showcase for Woody Nook's wines in England. This Woody Nook Chenin Blanc has sweet tropical fruits on the palate with a honeyed smoothness and a refreshing finish. Enjoy by itself or as an ideal accompaniment to spicy dishes.
6.356 tonnes of Chenin Blanc grapes were picked at a Baumé of 14 on the estate on February 26, 2012. They were brought straight to the winery from the vineyard and crushed, pressed and pumped into stainless steel, refrigerated tanks for settling. The clear juice was then racked to fermenters for alcohol fermentation. This process took 25 days. The wine was then protein and cold stabilized and subject to a fining procedure. After this the wine was filtered and ready for bottling in July 2012. 362 cases were made.
