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.

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.

Pretty good but sweeter than I’d like. Heavier on the pear than I would have liked. Would have preferred stronger green apple and citrus flavors.

Pleasantly surprised by this recommendation from Party Source... Sweeter than I expected! Would definitely buy again!

Dark yellow in color with a yellow tint.

Fruity nose of flowers, citrus, lemons, light grapefruits and green apples.

Medium bodied with medium acidity, crisp and refreshing.

Dry to off dry on the palate with citrus, tangerines, minerals, red apples, light tropical fruits, white peaches, pears and white pepper.

Medium plus in finish with tangy red grapefruit.

This is great Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley. Well-balanced and easy drinking with a little bit of sweetness to cut the acidity.

Not very complex, but so enjoyable by itself or with food. A great party wine, or just to sip on by the porch.

I loved the tangy finish without any bitterness. Really delicious.
