Lourens Lindi Carien White Blend 2020

Description

“I’m trying to tighten the screw each year,” says Franco Lourens of this electric Chenin Blanc based white bend with 40% Verdelho and 8% Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris. Focused, layered and effortlessly concentrated with apple, pear and greengage flavours, a nip of skin tannin and neutral oak. 2022-27 95/100 Tim Atkin MW
