Wine Review: This is the 36th vintage for this wine. Each year it is consistent and Very Good. I consider it a baseline for CA Chenin. This year’s vintage is pale yellow in color and opens with a pleasant tropical fruit and citrus like bouquet. On the palate, this light bodied wine is balanced, reasonably crisp, with citrus and green apple like flavors. There is also a hint of minerality. The finish is dry, clean, and subtle. Serve this wine slightly chilled with pork tenderloin with an apple compote. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Chenin Blanc is serious business at Dry Creek Vineyard. Since 1972, this crisp and refreshing white wine has played an important role at our winery. Each vintage brings about a renewed appeal for this delicious variety and 2007 is no different. Aromas of honeysuckle, banana, orange peel and tropical fruit burst forward on the nose. The palate is defined by vibrant flavors of green apple, citrus, and melon that mingle with crisp acidity. The finish is harmonious, repeating the tropical fruit theme. Paired with oysters, our dry Chenin Blanc is a match made in heaven!
