Incredible Chenin Blanc from Baja, Mexico. Although not super "traditional" as far as Chenin Blanc goes, this bottling still shows plenty of juicy pear and honey, while offering rather unusual qualities including surprising notes of red berries like strawberry and cranberry (very uncommon in white wine). Pretty floral accents never threaten to dominate, avoiding the dreaded "perfumy" descriptor. The acidic cut and refreshingly dry minerality close out the palate. Unfortunately, too many people will pass this by simply because its Mexican. They do not know what they're missing.

Additional Information:


Chenin Blanc

- Also called Pineau de la Loire and Pineau d'Anjou. Chenin Blanc is an expressive white French varietal that makes beautiful dry, sweet and sparkling wines. Traditionally grown in the Loire Valley, the wines made from this varietal are typically labeled geographically. Vouvray Chenins are traditionally medium-sweet; Savennières Chenins are typically bright and crisp; Coteaux du Layon Chenins like Bonezeaux and Quarts de Chaume are among the world's most sought-after sweet wines, and the sparkling Chenins of Saumur are perfumed and delicious. What all of these iterations of the grape have in common is their ability to age, a gift bestowed upon them because of the grape's naturally high-acidity.
