"The 2018 Elodie, which comes from dry-farmed Chenin Blanc, has a light bouquet of Conference pear, sea spray and damp earthy scents. The palate is well balanced with good body and grip. It has a seductive, almost viscous texture, a rich Chenin Blanc, yet with sufficient acidity to retain freshness. Dried honey, grapefruit and dried orange peel furnish a finish of decent length. Fine."
