Wine Review: This pale straw colored Chenin Blanc opens with a mild honeydew melon bouquet with a hint of pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused green apple with hints of lemon herbal tea. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chenin is a good value and very food friendly. I would pair it with crab cakes. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a vibrant, pale yellow wine which glistens in the sunlight. The first thought is refreshing after nosing this wine and discovering tropical fruits such as kiwi and casaba melon notes and a touch of linalool and blood orange notes. The palate is completely balanced in its acidity and mid-palate allowing a variation of flavors to be revealed: citron lemon, key lime, Pipen apple, fig and Meyer lemon zest. It finishes with honeysuckle, mango, passion fruit and kumquat.
