2016 Chenin Blanc

Old Vine

Horse Heaven Hills

WINEMAKER NOTES

Our Chenin Blanc exhibits aromas of over-ripe pineapple, apricot, dried guava and canned pear on the nose. The bouquet expresses vivid notes of straw, lemongrass, dried herbs and acacia. There is an outburst of “sweet” tropical fruit in the mid -palate, framed by a rich, creamy texture and firm acidity. The mouth feel is pleasant and powerful, yet elegant and balanced. The expressive fruit and herbal notes on the palate are also accompanied a definite mineral quality that brings another intriguing dimension to the wine. This Chenin Blanc is very versatile and will complement almost any occasion. Grilled pork chops, citrus infused salads, Indian cuisine and zucchini soufflé with goat cheese will pair well with our Chenin Blanc. Enjoy!
