Wine Review: This pale straw colored Chenin Blanc from Vouvray opens with a pear and lily bouquet. On the palate, this wine full bodied, juicy and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe pear with notes of honey and hints of pineapple, applesauce and mineralty. The finish is semi-dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chenin Blanc would pair well with roast pork chops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Straw yellow in color, the nose reveals classic Chenin Blanc characteristics - floral notes that are reminiscent of acacias with hints of dried fruit. Crisp green apple and citrus fruit are backed by a solid minerality that leads to a concentrated and well balanced, dry palate. Serve chilled and enjoy with appetizers, seafood and poultry.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
