    February 10, 2019 - Drank this a while ago. I recall it being very good, and having lots of good chenin blanc typicity and not too heavy.

    August 8, 2018 - liked this a lot - blew through expectations based on price and grape (candidly, not that much experience with chenin). wonderful with salmon - mid-weight, touch of beeswax, very nice minerality

    March 20, 2018 - Big round chenin blanc with honeyed Notes. Decent amount of oak I think. Rich. Different than other sandlands chenins with are cleaner and crisp. This was round and complex

    January 15, 2018 - Better than last time. Same waxy texture and rich citrus, but the oak is less obtrusive. Nice.
