Wine Review: This almost clear colored Chenin Blanc opens with a mild Bartlett pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and bright. The flavor profile is a pear and banana blend with nicely integrated minerality. The finish is quite dry and refreshing. I would pair this Chenin with oysters. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This beautiful wine is wonderfully consistent vintage after vintage. We receive superior Chenin Blanc fruit from the Wilson Ranch in Clarksburg, allowing us to produce an expressive, nuanced and delicious wine. At first swirl, aromatics of white peach, cantaloupe, melon and lavender spring forward from the glass. On the palate, the wine is refreshing with great acidity and mouthfeel feeling light on its feet and dancing across the palate with juicy tropical fruit notes and minerally undertones. 100% stainless steel fermentation guarantees the fresh fruit character fans of this wine have come to appreciate over the years. This is the quintessential summer sipper and the perfect wine to pair with fresh oysters!
