Description: Welcoming light sweetness with lovely quince, white peach, and apricot fruit, laced with a pungent garlic-ginger character toward the finish. The finish is mouthwatering with nice round viscosity with underlying acidity.
Chenin Blanc is a versatile white grape variety known for its high acid and diverse flavor profile based on the soil and climate. Most commonly associated with the Loire Valley, Chenin Blanc has been cultivated in France for nearly 1300 years. Chenin Blanc is also a popular grape grown in South Africa which used to be known as Steen. In Vouvray, wine made from Chenin Blanc is typically left a little sweet, just enough to give the wine some extra velvety richness. This is a rare white grape that ages gracefully, showing more nuanced flavors and honey tones as it develops.
Food Pairing: Great by itself, desserts, BBQ, goat cheese, Asian foods, spicy foods, etc.
