Wine Review: Pleasant and refreshing, this golden yellow Chenin Blanc has aromas of ripe pear, wet slate, apple skins and a hint of honeysuckle. On the palate, I found medium-plus acidity, a medium body, a slightly creamy and round mouthfeel with nice clean flavors. Those flavors were white peach, green melon and lemon along with some baked apple and ginger. The finish is long with some spiciness. This good value Chenin would go well with a creamy scallop risotto. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Our medium-bodied Chenin Blanc has aromas of Bosc pears, honeydew, light guava, and a lovely flint-mineral character. These intense aromas are followed by flavors of pear, white peach, lemon-zest and citrus that finishes crisp, plush and mouth-filling. Served with goat cheese stuffed chicken, a soft-shelled crab or a lovely watercress salad.
