Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chenin Blanc from Washington State opens with a white peach and grapefruit pith bouquet with hints of jasmine blossom and apple cider. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and clean. The flavor profile is a quince and gentle chamomile tea blend with notes of Meyer lemon curd and crushed stone. The finish is dry, and its flavors linger for a while. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chenin with poached sole with a white wine reduction and capers or with a delicate styled sushi. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: With distinctive aromatics, spanning from white floral to pink peppercorn, this dry Chenin is vivid and lively. In the mouth, flavors burst forward with magnolia, Meyer lemon skin, and citrus custard, offset by a remarkable note of salinity. The wine is snappy and interesting, carrying through to a flavorful and persistent finish.
