2020 Chouette Wine Tuffeau
Chouette Wine is Tom Daniel, a second generation Swan Valley Winemaker.
Tom champions the heritage vineyards in the valley, many of which have been pulled out over the years. Notes from Tom:
The Chenin parcels that sang to me this year - a skinsy orange partial barrel ferment portion & an extended lees worked portion that saw old French oak. Textural, limetstone chalky with a light confectionary aromatic lift that carries through to savoury skinsy grip & nice phenolic hit. Crushable yet serious. Unfined and unfiltered.
