Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chenin Blanc was a popular choice at a charity tasting we conducted recently on a warm summer evening. It is pale yellow colored and opens with a Macintosh apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and very easy going. The flavor profile is a mild Anjou pear with notes of mineral and a hint of lime. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This pleasant summer is a very good value. I would serve it again at a clambake with butter drawn steamers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Abundant citrus and tropical fruit aromas follow through on the lively palate of this alluring Chenin Blanc. It's packed with luscious, mouthwatering flavors of pineapple, lychee, lemon, and lime as well as delicate floral and spice nuances resulting from the light oak treatment. A touch of late harvest Chenin Blanc adds considerable richness and complexity.
