Critical Acclaim:

Wine Enthusiast 91 points:

This wine is consistently one of the best values from the state or the country for that matter. The aromas leap up, with notes of passion fruit, guava and kiwi. The palate is broad and flavorful, with vibrant, mouthwatering acidity. It's a stylistic shift from recent vintages, with the coolness of the season and October frost making it considerably more nervy and edgy.

The 2019 Chenin Blanc Old Vines begins with a vibrant and floral nose, opening to aromas of white peach, sweet citrus, green apple and underripe pear, plus pineapple tones with a soft dusty minerality. Medium-bodied, the wine is expressive on the palate with lively acidity, a citrus-laced mouthfeel and balanced structure. Concluding with a lingering finish, a persistent and energetic acidity remains with a citrus blossom essence. This wine may represent the best value in all of Washington State.
