Varietal Focus: Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc

Loire Valley, South Africa, British Columbia, Argentina, US, Australia

Aromatic yellow, green and red apple, pear, lemon lime pith, chalk, wet wool and wet straw undertones.  Chammomile tea, honey suckle and tree blossoms    A rich wine with great acidity and a tendency for an off dry finish.

Pairings with poultry and smoked meats (salmon, trout), even lamb works as it has a vegetable earth note on the mid palate.  Great with savory-sweet combos too.
