About The Wine
The Sanskrit Chenin Blanc originates from a single block in the Clare Valley.
It was here that winemaker Nav Singh found the fruit with the drive and intensity to make his small batch Chenin. It's tightly coiled but layered with complexity.
Fermented naturally in barrel with 6 months on lees, this takes Chenin into the domain of fine wine.
A wine of purity and intensity, this is Chenin Blanc in full flight.
About Domaine Simha
Nav Singh is the man behind the Domaine Simha label. Along with his wife Louise, Nav has built a unique stable of Tasmanian wines under the Domaine Simha banner.
He draws from multiple philosophies when crafting his range. The winemaking is mostly traditional, using low amounts of additives, fermenting in clay amphora, experimenting with varying levels of whole bunch and skin contact. The fruit he sources from the Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley regions, is all picked according to the lunar calendar ala biodynamics.
At Domaine Simha, new project is always in the works. Nav is never afraid to take a chance or try something new.
