On the nose of the 2019 Original Chenin Blanc, peach skin, pineapple and honeysuckle all pop out of the glass with precision, followed by wet stone and fresh lemon pith. There is no oak to speak of on the palate. The medium-bodied wine shows its freshness in the mouth along with additional flavors of banana peel and pear slices across the mid-palate. It's a beautiful wine that shows precision, mineral tension and fresh fruit flavors, ending with a lingering finish that delivers pleasure to the drinker. This wine is delicious and is also a great value. Bravo!

The 2019 Original Chenin Blanc comes from two soil types: decomposed granite and sandstone, with six months’ aging on the lees. The lively, outgoing bouquet features bold lemon curd, damp straw and mango aromas. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry with notes of lime and orange zest, leading to a vibrant, zesty finish. Delicious.
