This Portland-based winery led by husband and wife team @Thomas Monroe and @Kate Monroe ventured into Washington's Yakima Valley to source fruit for this demi-sec ode to the Loire. Zippy acidity perfectly balances the white peach sweetness and silica-driven silky texture. Makes a delicious companion for spicy, herbaceous dishes.

Nice work @Thomas Monroe and @divisionwineco on this fun Chenin. It was awesome. Why did I wait so long to open it?

Still pretty young, but sittin pretty with delicate chamomile and citrus. And acidity to boot. Can't wait to try this vintage in another 6mos. Thank you @Chris Leon @leonandson

Spot on Chenin Blanc from Washington, fresh cut white flowers, green apples, great acidity, a bit of residual sugar but so delicious, isn't it @Pascaline Lepeltier, MS ? :-p

Curiously reduced but great acid structure - organically farmed Chenin on basalt in the Columbia gorges with a lot of inspiration from the loire
