Wine Review: This light yellow colored Reserve level Chenin Blanc from South Africa is very good. It opens with an oak and lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a new oak influenced lime with notes of Anjou pear and minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while. This Chenin Blanc is very much like a very nice oaked California Chardonnay. I would pair it with a lobster casserole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This show stopping white displays effusive aromas of white flower, stone fruit, citrus, honey and toast which erupt into opulent flavors of honeyed pear, orange blossom, caramel and spice. It's a world class offering that strikes a brilliant balance between lush fruit and crisp, mouthwatering acidity.

Organic status: not organic
