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

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.

Perfect for this warm evening. Notes of peach, pear, and tropical fruit. Floral, balanced and very drinkable.
