About This Wine...
85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Chenin. Simple yet elegant green pepper and apple add subtle Sauvignon tones to the more tropical Chenin Blanc. A refreshing acidic lift on the finish leaves a pleasing citrus taste on the palate.
Named in honour of Hirundo rustica, that valiant breed of migrating bird: arrives in Northern Europe from South Africa in April, rears at least two clutches of young during summer, then migrates back to South Africa for a well earned holiday – a dream many of us have and few fulfill.
“Bright, juicy and grassy with the green fruits of the Sauvignon Blanc tempered by the denser more textured Chenin Blanc” The Irish Examiner, June 2019
