Wine Review: This straw colored Chenin Blanc based blend opens with a mild green apple bouquet with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, round and mouthwatering.. The flavor profile is ripe papaya and pineapple blend with notes of lime and a hint of minerality. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine would pair very nicely with baked haddock or chicken Florentine. It is also versatile enough to be a nice glass pour option. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The Terra d'Oro 2013 Chenin Blanc and Viognier Blend is vibrant and inviting with tropical fruit notes. This wine enchants the nose with a bouquet of tropical and stone fruit blossoms and hints of spice. Filled with bright and juicy fruits, the palate flaunts flavors of papaya, ripe mango, candied pineapple and subtle apricot. The wine is refreshing and well balanced with crisp acidity. For a delicious food pairing, serve this wine with mild cheeses or a spicy Thai curry appetizer that packs a lot of punch.
