Pale lemon with aromas of sweet stone fruits and blossom notes. On the palate juicy peach, pear and honey with a nutty edge. Medium acidity and finish, simple but refreshing.

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.

A bit sweet for my tastes... and lacking acidity.

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.

Fresh oak. Residual sugars give a lovely dry caramel apple with warm spices. Not sweet. Balanced, thoughtful, interesting. As it warms it gets heavier.
We're drinking with smoked pork and poultry, and it holds up. Also works with pecan pie.
Would pair well with a grilled steak if you don't enjoy reds.
