Wine Review: This yellowish gold colored wine opens with a ripe apple bouquet with a whiff of lime. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and pleasantly crisp. The flavor profile is a tasty green apple with integrated minerality with a dash of white pepper. This wine would be a perfect complement for grilled swordfish with lemon drizzle. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This full-bodied Chenin harmoniously balances ripe fruit with delicate oak nuances. It flaunts a rich, luscious mouthfeel, with flavors of melon and tropical fruit enhanced by complex mineral notes and hints of spice. Extended lees contact imparts an alluring honeycomb character.
