The second vintage for the MMAD Vineyard team was a low-yielding and cool season, which warmed up nicely as we approached harvest. Fruit concentration is a feature of the year. Hand-picked fruit was crushed and fermented in concrete (50%) and whole bunch pressed and fermented in large old oak (50%). The result has frangipani aromas, zesty acid, but also generous fruit with cumquat and yellow nectarine flavours, and a touch of talcum powder. An intense and singular expression of old vine Chenin Blanc.

"The second release of this wine sees more depth and texture, reflecting an evolution of making after winemaker Adam Wadewitz got the measure of grape and site – on Maslin sands over ironstone. There’s chew and race in equal measure, with tart golden apples, ripe Meyer lemon, cool stone fruit, sea spray and savoury elements of crushed fennel seed, white pepper and a waxy chalkiness. Integrated barrel/mlf notes round out flavour and feel, with an intriguing saline slip to the palate complementing the subtle grip and the pleasing rip of natural acid. It’s a superb wine, thrillingly refined and detailed. The upward trajectory of this project is one to watch very closely."
