    Winemaker's Notes:

    Low yielding, dryland vineyards with 40 - 45 year-old bush vines planted on very deep soils on rolling hills exposed to southeastern winds, rain and abundant sunshine.

    Upfront tropical fruit, ripe pineapple, melon, peaches and honey flavors on the nose. Full and juicy palate with layers of ripe tropical fruit complemented by a long clean and crisp finish.

    Good company for alfresco lunches of grilled chicken or fish, rich pasta dishes and spicy food.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Complex nose and palate meld peach, pineapple, snap pea, dusty brown spices and white tobacco, all lifted by a citrus element. Dense, ripe, seamless and concentrated, with its light sweetness and touch of oak nicely buffered by harmonious acidity.

    I love a good chenin blanc during the warm summer months, and I usually go from the ones from South Africa because of the soil. Every chenin blanc I've had from South Africa has been on the drier side, which is a plus. It's light, it's crisp, pairs well with a lot of lighter foods and even a tomato fennel sauce. This wine is also nice because of its concentrated nature on the palate. It's not a fruit bomb and doesn't just drop off the palate without warning.
