Made with fruit from old vines planted in 1978-79, I smelled tropical fruit aromas of pineapples and passionfruit, along with sunkissed nectarines and ripe apples in this wine.


As I sipped this Chenin blanc, I tasted all those aromatic fruit flavors, plus casaba melon on the finish. Crisp and tart with lovely acidity, enjoy this wine all year long– basking in the summer sun on the porch, in front of a winter fire, or during the rainy season as you reminisce of long days filled with sunshine.

Food pairing suggestions: 

Drink this Chenin blanc with shellfish, carrot orzo, braised pork in sweet soy sauce, fish tacos with cabbage slaw.

SRP $15
