This beautiful wine is wonderfully consistent vintage after vintage. At first swirl, aromatics of honeydew melon, white peach and Meyer lemon spring forward from the glass with notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle and chamomile. On the palate, the wine is refreshing with flavors of lemon, pear and mango with a hint of green apple. The mouthfeel is lively but rich, and has a subtle creaminess. 100% stainless steel fermentation guarantees the fresh fruit character that fans of this wine have come to appreciate over the years. This classic, Loire Valley-style wine is excellent when paired with fresh oysters, seafood, or just about anything!

Wine Review OnlineUsually associated with France’s Loire Valley (think Vouvray), Chenin can be made in a variety of different styles, from crisp sparklers to honeyed sweeties and everything in between. Dry Creek’s version is a dry wine backed by a good ratio of acidity and a graceful, somewhat oily texture. Notes of pear and pineapple abound, with a whiff of honeysuckle in the background.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a long-running success story for the winery. It carries aromas of citrus zest and freshly sliced apples on the nose. The palate shows good balance through crisp acidity and a medium body, tempered slightly by 4 g/L residual sugar.
