Wine Review: This white gold colored wine is amazingly consistent from year to year. The 2006 opens with a very pleasant green apple bouquet. On the palate, this light to medium bodied wine is very easy going, slightly creamy, and has some good acidity. The crisp apple flavors are consistent throughout. The finish is mouthwatering, slightly dry, and nicely refreshing. This is the kind of affordable and tasty wine that restaurants should be including in their glass pour programs. Finally as you can see the label of this wine has a beautiful sailboat on it; I could envision us all enjoying a glass of this very good wine on that boat this summer. Ken

Winemaker Notes: Crafted in the traditional Loire Valley style, our Chenin Blanc is stainless steel fermented to preserve the fresh tropical aromas and bright acidity that have become hallmarks of this wine. At first swirl, the wine displays notes of melon, peach, and lemon peel. On the palate, crisp acidity is balanced with juicy tropical fruit flavors and additional hints of honeysuckle and rose petal. The finish is precise and harmonious with wonderful intensity and flavor – a perfect match with fresh shucked oysters or spicy Thai food.
