Hi residual sugar that's not indicated anywhere on the label makes this a surprising Wine. Pleasant enough in the right environment but not what most people will be expecting.

Nice crisp Chenin Blanc as we watch #tourdefrance stage 3. Good acid and great finish.

A bit austere for my taste. Loire Chen Blanc can be more interesting than this.

Green gold colour. Aromas of botrytis, honey, and pear. Medium-bodied, lush, medium-sweet, flavours of honey, pear, pineapple, and minerally finish.

This could be dessert in its own right. Very enjoyable.

A nicely made dessert wine, especially for the price ($22). A lighter style; peach, a strong lemon note. Good viscosity - satisfyinf but not too heavy. This would be great with a fruit-centric dessert. Pandemic bottle #21.
