Winemaker's Notes

A dry Chenin Blanc with delicious creamy fruit that exhibits pear, apple and hints of passion fruit. The acidity is wonderfully balanced and provides excellent balancing zip and freshness.

Critical Acclaim

"A bright, high-toned style, with lime and quince notes backed by a honeysuckle thread. The finish is long and lacy. Drink now through 2010."
