Winemaker's Notes

Chenin Blanc was one of the first two wines produced by Hogue more than 15 years ago, and since then the winery has made consistently flavorful and well-balanced wines from this under-appreciated grape.

A rich mid-palate, good balance and sound structure make it a great match for many lighter dishes; winemaker Co Dinn recommends trying it with sushi or fish tacos.
