Wine Review: This wine is so consistent from year to year. On the bouquet, this wine has a light distinctive grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, the wine is acidic and slightly creamy. It finishes dry and refreshing. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vibrant aromas of orange blossom, lemon zest, ripe pear and pineapple burst out of the glass. Flavors of green apple, candied citrus, lemon, lime and grapefruit dance across the palate as nearly all the citrus fruits are delivered in a single sip. Balanced acidity is the key to this Chenin Blanc. Served chilled, it’s excellent as both an aperitif or food wine, notably with oysters, summer salad, or Asian inspired cuisine.
