Grapefruit nose like a Sauvignon Blanc, but sweet Chenin on the palate. Confusing: nose not equal palate. Simple, mostly dry, slight lemony acidic finish.

Not as dry as the name might suggest, this wine actually has .6% residual sugar. It is the perfect accompaniment to spicy Indian food.

For some, Chenin Blanc is a move-along-nothing-to-see-here wine. For others, it's a go-to in more situations than not. Dry Creek Vyd.'s Chenin is very consistent, balancing gentle fruit, acid, texture. Went surprisingly well with a spicy roasted tomato soup and grilled smoked - mozzarella.

Simple, light, acidic start, dry finish. A little bit fruity but not overly sweet
