A glorious citrus melon with low acidity and a light syrup body. Flavors of ripe pear and apple with a tinge of white cheddar. Short sweet finish.

Some intriguing white pepper and fresh herb notes. A little muted with a slightly clipped finish but a nice Chenin.

A nice medium intensity gold color. Fresh floral honeysuckle, crushed stone minerality, sweet lemon and ripe, juicy pear. Excellent medium+ acidity and body, medium alcohol. Pear, sweet lemon, and then white peach gives away the new world. A long clean finish that is minerallly and juicy.

This is a fantastic new world Chenin and highly recommended. $13

4 years on and showing well. Savory, leesy, nutty. Brightly acidic with a good finish.

Mostly pear with a fruity aroma. The structure is quite acidic. Medium finish and body.

Fairy tropical and with some weight, this wine could stand up nicely to some Indian food perhaps.
