A terrific, soft summer sipper with fresh peach and pear notes. Nice expression of Californian Chenin Blanc that we don't see often on the liquor store shelves.

|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Green apple and pear aromas with a sweet baked apple flavor on the palate.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Ripe apricot and vanilla aromas. The taste follows and adds a touch of soft yellow apple. There's medium acidity with a soft, round mouth feel. This would pair well with a spicy pork dish.
|Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Pale yellow in colour, with aromas of green apple and tree fruit. An unexpected sweet finish enhances the apple flavours. This is the first Chenin Blanc I've tried, ever, and I think I will definitely try more!
|Astrid Young - Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Kosher Chenin? Why not. Classic lanolin and wet wool on the nose, showing some nice florals on the swirl. Medium bodied, and a bit fatter than you'd want your Chenin for the most part, but otherwise quite typical, with notes of almond extract and a tiny bit of residual. Acid comes and goes on the finish, showing some oxidative and overripe aspects on the back. Enjoy with roasted nuts and chips with salsa. A little bit of heat will lift the fruit nicely.
|Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Clear yellow/green color with a nose of asian pear, apple and peach.
The wine is lively, thin and short.
This off-dry wine will pair well with and avocado and crab salad.
Serve it at 8-10 degrees.
This wine is ready to drink.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
Totally inviting nose! Tons of floral and ripe fruit characters: pink lady apples, pear, cantaloupe and hints of white pepper and ginger syrup. A little closure to the off-dry side of the spectrum, medium plus body and medium light acidity. Pair option: pork tenderloin medallions.
|Jane LeFresne rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
An interesting nose on this wine. Aromas of apple, lemon, floral, hints of pear and melon.
Flavours of apple, asian pear and honey. Would pair well with pork dishes.
|Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:|
Apple and lime dominate the nose. Off dry, a little thin. Sweetness on the finish outshines the acidity a tad too much. Pair with spicy food to balance it out, or drink on its own if you prefer your whites on the sweeter side.
