Vintage 2013 - Retasting this #lateharvest #cheninblanc from Marlborough New Zealand and I find it awesome. It has great balance and a seductive smell with loads of honey and peaches. It’s really good. Partnered it with a kitchen favorite: guinea fowl livers with salted capers and a half glass of the wine. Try this and be surprised!
