Pale yellow white, excellent clarity. Floral, honey and citrus notes in nose. Semi dry, lemon and stone fruit flavors. Minimal tannins, rounded mouthfeel but slightly tart finish. Dried apricot aftertaste with slight effervescence in the mouth. Good value, great fruit, simply made.

This crisp Chenin is delightful, light bodied with orange and nectarine up front, with a restrained lemon-lime finish. It complemented Mexican food superbly.

This was ok. It's more on the sweet side than I prefer. Has a syrupy mouthfeel.

Really a great wine that a friend brought all the way from Washington. Dry according to the label, but I thought it had a mild sweetness to it.

A tad sweeter than I like but it is refreshing on a hot day.
