Wine Review: This pale straw colored Chenin Blanc from California opens with a ripe peach and apricot like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, crisp and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with notes of Anjou pear. I also detected hints of quince, pilsner beer and white pepper. The finish is dry and refreshing. This is a very nice summer wine. It would pair nicely with shellfish. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: At first swirl, aromatics of white pear, pineapple and banana spring forward from the glass. On the palate, the wine is refreshing with flavors of mandarin, melon and white pear. The mouthfeel is lively and refreshing, and has a subtle creaminess. 100% stainless steel fermentation guarantees the fresh fruit character that fans of this wine have come to appreciate over the years. This classic, Loire Valley-style wine is excellent when paired with fresh oysters or seafood.
