Pale straw hue. Notes of white peach, honey. Asian pear and quince on the palate. Light-medium body. Pretty much off-dry balanced by a crisp finish with fairly reserved mineral notes. Quality bottle all around

Nice wine - had this with a pork stir fry and it went perfectly. Sweetness is not overwhelming at all

A little sweeter than my preference, but a good quaff with cheese and crackers.

Excellent picnic wine, as well as for lots of other occasions. Time to buy more.

This may actually be my first off dry Chenin Blanc from Loire Valley. 11.5% alcohol. Ripe honeydew melon, green apple, and kiwi. Lovely minerality. An easy summer sipper.
