91 Points Wine Enthusiast (8/07) ~ The Chenin blanc first gives scents of fresh peaches and pears, and then moves to aromas of citrus blossoms, honeysuckle, apple, lime, and lemon. This wine is crisp, clean, and fruit forward, and the wine is very refreshing. The structure of the palate is full and silky with a crisp finish. The wine has a zesty citrus character on the palate with notes of peach, melon, and floral blossoms. There is a full nature in the mouthfeel with an extremely slight vanilla quality to the finish.

CWC Staff Pick: "I love this wine. It has great flavor and I am not normally a white wine drinker.  It's crisp and goes great with a spicy meal.  I have served this wine to friends and received many compliments."  Laura Achee, Sales Manager
