Strike gold in the Loire Valley! Vouvray sits atop the motherlode of great terroir where the Chenin Blanc grape finds its richest expression. Straw-gold in the glass, full and expressive on the tongue, this wine revels in an opulent mouthfeel, with flavors of white peach and apricot fruit rounded out with a suggestion of honey and ripe pear. All finished by cooling acidity and that great gravelly minerality. Enjoy it with lobster bisque, baked haddock with mango-ginger salsa, roast chicken, or turkey.
VARIETY: Chenin Blanc
