Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (88)

Review date: September 30, 2009

Wine Review: This Chenin is consistently Very Good every year. This years vintage is pale yellow colored and opens with a fragrant green apple bouquet with hints of apricot, grapefruit, and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and lively. The flavor profile is a zesty lime with some pleasant mineral notes mixed in. The finish is dry and mouthwatering with its mineral notes lingering nicely. This tasty Chenin would be a nice match for chicken picatta. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2008 Chenin Blanc is our first vintage in a screw cap and with a vineyard designation. At first swirl, inviting aromas of citrus, peach and tropical fruit leap from the glass. On the palate, the wine is simply refreshing and delicious, following the tropical fruit theme while displaying excellent acidity. This Chenin Blanc is balanced from start to finish and is the perfect aperitif wine.
