Wine Review: This very pale straw-colored Chenin Blanc opens with a quince and mild lily bouquet with hints of Anjou pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is round and fresh. The flavor profile is a stone dust and quince blend with notes of saline and white peach. I also detected hints of mandarin orange and lemon verbena. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity fade away nicely. This Chenin Blanc is consistently a good value. I would pair it with fish n’ chips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We are proud to have produced Dry Chenin Blanc each and every year since our family winery was founded in 1972. Extremely versatile and food friendly, it is the perfect aperitif and one of our most beloved wines. At first swirl, aromatics of honeydew, watermelon and pineapple spring forward from the glass with floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle. On the palate, the wine has refreshing flavors of cucumber, lime, and nectarine with hints of geranium, sweet basil, and ripe orange. The mouthfeel is soft but inviting, with a lively acidity. This classic, Loire Valley-style wine is excellent when paired with fresh oysters, seafood, or just about anything!
