Wine Review: The 2006 vintage of this wine was terrific, so I was looking forward to the next vintage. This pale yellow wine opens with a very fragrant grapefruit and citrus like bouquet. On the palate, this light to medium bodied wine is round, zippy, and has some good acidity. The wine displays tasty lime like flavors. The finish is dry and lingers a bit. This wine is not quite as good as the 2006, but it is still really good and flavorful. It will pair nicely with mussels Provencal. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Abundant citrus and tropical fruit aromas follow through on the lively palate of this elegant, complex Chenin Blanc. It’s packed with intense, zippy flavors of pineapple, lychee, lemon, and lime as well as delicate floral and spice nuances resulting from the light oak treatment. A touch of late harvest Sauvignon Blanc adds considerable richness and the faintest hint of sweetness, countered by racy acidity.
