We’ve enjoyed a few of these throughout 2020. It continues to deliver & certainly did so tonight with Indian takeout. Bright & fresh.

Another great showing. Consistent, approachable & full of fruit. Definitely a wine to have on hand as a house bottle.

These just deliver every time. Pear & quince with a floral aromatic note. Great acidity & freshness. Wonderful bottle of Chenin.

Purchased at Whole Foods. Super easy and pleasant drinking with grilled sausages. Also nice as an aperitif. Medium + acidity and loaded with ripe citrus, pear, peaches, apples, and a long succulent finish.

Summertime Chenin. Should have been a hit song. Exuberant & vibrant fruit. Incredibly fresh acid. Aromatics are like being in an orchard of the ripest apples. Brilliant stuff.

Solid for years. Pineapple, honey, slightly dry on the finish. Pretty robust for a sweet smelling wine

Vibrant, ripe apples bring instant enjoyment. Yes, there’s enough acidity to provide a backbone to the abundant fruit, but this feels more on the side of enjoyment than complexity. Lovely.

Really lovely, balanced Vouvray. Lots of minerality, a touch of stone fruit, excellent acidity. Was wonderful with some grilled lemon thyme marinated chicken, but probably good with most food. This is a wine I’d be happy drinking every day with lots of different foods. I’d like to find the person who doesn’t like it.
