Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Chenin Blanc opens with a fragrant ripe honeydew melon and lime bouquet with hints of pear and florals. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, juicy and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is chalky minerality, gooseberry, and lime blend with notes of saline and white peach. We also detect hints of honeydew melon and Anjou pear. The finish is dry, and its flavors linger nicely and then fade away. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chenin with oysters or sushi. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This elegant and beautifully aromatic Chenin Blanc displays an enticing bouquet of marmalade, Asian pear, lemon zest and fresh-cut hay, with hints of savory dried sage. On the palate, the 2020 vintage coats the mouth with flowing citrus and pear flavors, with elegant underlying acidity providing freshness and energy throughout a long, lush finish.
