This is a lovely smack on varietal Chenin. This one is a mild flavored one with a bit of sweetness and a bit of crispness. I get a bit of that “Sauterne” like flavor. I had it with a nice peice of pan fried Cod and went well. Kanu is still my fav Chenin but you can’t get that one anymore. I had been looking forward to a Loire Valley Chenin and I was not disappointed. I would recommend this one. Delicious. I will be grabbing a few more of this one for sure.
