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.
