Immaculately clean, light, expressive, and transparent, this wine is one of the strongest opening volleys in the resurgence of one of the white varietals that started the wine biz in Washington state: Chenin Blanc. Far from the rocky, occasionally dirty Chenins our parents used to drink from the Loire Valley, this blend intimates sweetness while never once verging on cloying. Fresh cut peaches is the first impression, followed by pineapple, almonds, Bartlett pears, mango, apricot, fresh cream, honeysuckle, and a hint of melon.
