Dry with a bit of waxiness and figs on the nose. Full on the palate. Acid prevalent but integrated. Long, full finish. Would be interesting to age this one.

Tropical fruits in chilling mountain air. Perfect kick back and relax Chenin. Great minerality, cold spring/mountain air element combined with ripe peaches, tropical fruits, crisp green apple, chamomile, white flowers and incredible, enveloping acidity. This wine was made for cheese- Port Salut, Humbolt Fog or St Agur. Slays most Chenin in its price range.

Terrific wine! Tropical notes on the attack, fresh and zesty, flowery mid palate lead by acacia. Pear, apple, citrus notes on the finish. A delicious Chenin blanc!!

2014 - always rock steady - muted - a little sweeter then tender - I always root for more with this wine.
