    Chenineres Old Vine Chenin Blanc- 91 points 2012 VintageWine SpectatorHarvey SteinmanOctober 15, 2013

    "This tight, crisp, lip-smacking style offers focused quince and citrus flavors on a deftly distributed frame, lingering enticingly on the finish. A stylish version, with the ability to age. Drink now through 2016. 148 cases made." –Harvey Steinman

     


    tasting notes

    Sourced entirely from Newhouse vineyard Chenin Blanc planted in 1978, this evokes a lush array of fruits, from Tuscan melon to kumquat to pineapple and citrus. All stainless fermented, it needs hours of breathing to fully reveal more subtle notes of fresh grass, tarragon and white pepper. The gorgeous finish lasts literally for several minutes.
