Dry, no question. Ripe pears, a touch of honey (but dry). Full body, great acidity. Thanks to @Napa Valley Wine Academy for reminding me to expand my horizons.

Such a beauty. Dry floral notes, lavender honey, clean crisp apple finish.

Elegant, sexy and complete. Silky pear, honeydew, oat, flowers, honeycomb, brown spice, and rocky mineral notes. With medium-full weight and crisp gritty acidity the wine dances across the palate giving pleasure and promising so much for those patient enough to give this time to develop in bottle. Drink now with good air or hold for 5-7 years. 2013

Softer than other Chenin Blancs I've had. Bone dry and easy to drink.
