Tangent by Alexia Wairarapa Chenin Blanc 2021

TANGENT: from the Latin ‘tangere’, meaning to touch.

A lo-fi wine - vineyard derived yeasts for a wild ferment, minimal handling, and no additions except sulphur.

The 2021 vintage gave us a beautiful Chenin crop - full of golden bunches, bright flavours and a wonderfully taut mineral seam giving the wine intensity, texture and drive.

Picked in two portions - one pick immediately pressed, the other gently foot stomped and left on skins, before being pressed off and aged in a neutral vessel. Bone dry.

Taste: Lemon, honeycomb, white florals, taut.

Vineyard derived yeasts for wild fermentation, minimal handling, no fining, and no additions except sulphur. Vegan friendly.

Please note: This wine is made in as hands-off a way as possible. As a result, there may be a slight naturally occurring crystalline deposit at the bottom of the bottle.
