Wine Review: This white gold colored Chenin Blanc opens with a fragrant white peach and Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of lime zest and saline. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, mouthwatering, and bright. The flavor profile is a quince and lime blend with notes of chamomile tea and ginger. I also detected hints of white pepper, honeydew melon, and lemon verbena. The finish is refreshing and very nicely prolonged. I would pair this versatile Chenin Blanc with sushi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fermented in 100% stainless steel barrels, this beautiful wine is wonderfully bright and consistent vintage after vintage. At first swirl, aromatics of honeydew, watermelon and mango spring forward from the glass with floral notes of jasmine and orange blossom. On the palate, the wine has refreshing flavors of peach, Meyer lemon and cucumber with hints of geranium, white tea and white pepper. The mouthfeel is soft but inviting, with a voluptuous texture. This classic, Loire Valley-style wine is excellent when paired with fresh oysters, seafood, or just about anything!
