Medium dry and very refreshing! Hadn’t had a Chenin Blanc in a minute and this didn’t disappoint. Notes of honey and subtle citrus finish. Yummy!!!

Didn't really feel this wine. Had melon qualities and classic vouvray nose, but more light bodied than I like from a vouvray. Wouldn't go out of my way to drink this wine again.

Medium body. Honey and a little candied apple, but lacking acidity for roundness. Would probably not pick up again

Stony creek. Drinkable. Not as good as the stony creek Pinot.

A touch too tilted to off-dry, this was nonetheless a superb pairing with grilled chicken in coconut garlic-ginger sauce. Bruised yellow fruit and candied apple on the nose, medium body, and a nice pickup on acidity at the end. Long and satisfying finish. For a more seasoned Chenin palate or those who enjoy the sensation of some residual sugar notes.

The 2012 is off dry with good acidity. Good with stir-fry and hot peppers.

New carpet glue, sweet tarts and chalk on the nose. Tangerine and lime in the palate with a little more softness to the palate. Not a really overwhelming wine. - Drink now.
