Spring Chenin fix. Tart green apple, citrus, flower musk. Not hugely complex but quite delish

Simple Sunday night solo supper with the wine that always overdelivers: peaches and rocks! Such a great wine for the price!

Textbook Vouvray for everyday drinking. Dryish, with a big acid backbone, yet melony, fruity and slammable. Always a good value. #vouvray #cheninblanc

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.
