Tasting Notes

Our 2019 Chenin Blanc is fresh and lively. The nose is ripe suggesting yellow apple, ripe pear, peach, honey, and upon a deeper sniff, orange zest and orange blossom. I just opened this bottle and it is already developing in the glass. The palate is dry, but the ripe fruit balances the higher acidity. There is a lovely concentration to this wine and the finish is long. I am looking forward to how it develops over time. It reminds me of a fresher version of the 2017 vintage, and I predict the botrytis will start pushing through by the fall. Have this wine outside in the sun, and maybe with a nicoise salad or even oysters.
