Vinum Cellars 2014 Chenin Blanc, (Clarksburg, Ca.), $14.39-$15.99, 89+ points, is another excellent expression of this white wine more associated with South Africa than America.
Poured the slightest shades of gold colors.
Beautiful aromas of pome flowers, lemon, and Lychee were outstanding.
Light-bodied with great acidity, melon and citrus flavors with a hint of circus peanut candy and white pepper.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, lemon zest, and a sweet-spot 13.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my steamed soft-shell Maine lobster in melted butter. I bought this white wine at Whole Foods of Bedford.
