Wine Review: This wine just won the Boston Globe’s plonk contest for 2006. So, I thought I would give it a try. It opens with a nice grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, the wine is round and very nicely balanced. The flavors were acidic and tasty. I can see why this wine did well in their contest. It is well made and a very good bargain. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Perfect everyday drinking wine. A youthful wine showing fresh ripe melon with a mellow, round, mild, and honeysuckle fruit palate and refreshingly long finish.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Chenin Blanc.
