Wine Review: This pale gold colored Chenin Blanc opens with a quince and poached Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of honey and lemon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and smooth with crisp acidity that is mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced Anjou pear with notes of chamomile tea, almond, saline and lemon verbena. The finish is dry, extended and refreshing. The Panel would pair this Chenin with pan-fried walleye or broiled halibut. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Sleek, elegant and alluring, this beautiful old-vine Chenin Blanc offers aromas of white peach, Asian pear, hay and honeydew melon. On the palate, a beam of bright acidity adds poise and freshness to the enticing orchard fruit flavors, while carrying the wine to a long, succulent finish.
