CNW 2007 Chenin Blanc

We are fans of Vouvray wines and the principal grape for those wines is Chenin Blanc. We picked up this bottle at Vino 100 in Maumee not knowing quite what to expect in terms of sweetness.

This wine is produced by Wilson Vineyards on Clarksburg, California. Clarksburg has the reputation of being the Chenin Blanc capitol of California. Clarksburg is located west of Sacramento and has a unique microclimate with long hot days cooled by breezes from the Sierras. The grapes come from low yielding old vines which provide intensity to the fruit.

We found it to be refreshingly crisp and dry. Flavors of lemongrass and citrus fruit. This is a great alternative to Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc. This is a great Quality Price Ratio wine also.
