The color of this wine is pale yellow with a glint of steely grey. The beautiful aromatics are tropical with passionfruit, green papaya and mango notes which reminisce nicely with subtle floral jasmine. The entry on the palate is crisp and intentionally acidic expressing juicy lemon citrus with key lime, honey and a snap of ginger. The texture on the finish contemplates minerality, wet stone and finishes perfectly dry, allowing for the snappy, refreshing acidity to be revisited. This Chenin Blanc pairs fantastically with a wide range of fine cheeses and charcuterie as well as many seafood selections. A natural match with chilled fresh oysters on the half shell, best when some of the wine is used to make in the mignonette. It is wonderful with nigiri sushi and sashimi alike but perhaps my favorite as a cool summer- time sipper by the pool.
Lovely melon and freshly sliced apple aromas lead to crisp fruit flavors that are tangy and tempting in this light- to medium-bodied wine. It is absolutely refreshing.
