Pale golden hue. Quince, pear, lemon peel, blanched almond, yeast, bread dough, chamomile, dried white rose, bruised yellow apple, chalk and stone notes on the nose. Mouth-watering acidity and sharp nerve on the palate. Tart, lean, dry Chenin Blanc with delicate spice and green undertones. Evidence of oxidation with nutty and bruised orchard notes. Vintage 2013. ABV 11%.

Could see this pairing well with many different dishes, but oysters, with lemon zest, and fresh arugula and escarole salad, come to mind.

Sour beer notes, hard to place flavors, much different than the other Loire chenins we've been drinking but very interesting. Great acid.
