Wine Review: This white gold colored Chenin Blanc based blend opens with a white peach and yellow grapefruit bouquet with hints of ginger ale and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, zesty and juicy. The flavor profile is a blend of kiwi, stony minerality and apple with notes of orange and pineapple. I also detected some hints of chamomile tea and lime. The finish is off-dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This good value Chenin blend would be a nice glass pour for most restaurants and pubs. I would pair it with your favorite fish taco recipe or fish n’ chips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Crisp, bright, and vivacious! The Chenin aromatics bring citrus characters of lime, orange blossom, honey suckle, ginger, and melon. The Viognier aromatics tend to be a little heavier on stone fruit of nectarine and peach with hints of floral characters. The mouthfeel is clean, crisp with no oak or malolactic fermentation. The slight residual sugar and acid are in balance to add some mouthfeel but still create a crisp finish. This versatile wine pairs well with several dishes, from light salads to seafood.
