I drank this after dinner on 11/11/11. It had a wonderful, elegant bouquet of pear, apricot, tangerine, smoke and mineral. The palate was soft and dry with mouth watering acidity and flavors of pear, apricot, tangerine, mineral.
A thoroughly enjoyable white that is not a chardonnay, lighter than viognier, and fuller than pinot blanc. Easy drinking, with mineral and pear balancing the gentle acid, and even a hint of hay and pineapple on the nose. Finishes with a long, beautiful citrusy sweet melon. This is a well made wine, priced right, and still available from the winery.
A wonderful expression of chenin blanc. A very light straw color. A nose of pears, persimmons & apricots. Crisp green apple married with ripe pear and come honeyed apricot in a creamy mouth coating texture. The wine is not quite exactly balanced but something I think time in the bottle would solve (and is hidden if you serve too cold).
