Totally different from any white you're used to drink. This is like entering a cave in Loire valley and smelling the walls surround you ... It's completely enveloping you with stone and earthy minerality. A good level of acidity and well balanced alcohol level makes it the find of the month, if not the year!

Wow. Nicely aged 2001 Chenin Blanc at Sycamore in Newton MA. Great with bluefish.

Oxidative profile, honey, almond, and apple notes. Not exactly a crowd pleaser, but very good if you like this style.
