- Item #: i_216600Bottle Size: 750mlWith more than 25 years of history, Dry Creek Vineyards has created a lasting legacy with their Dry Chenin Blanc. This beautiful wine is wonderfully consistent vintage after vintage. At first swirl, aromatics of honeydew melon, white peach and Meyer lemon spring forward from the glass with notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle and chamomile. On the palate, the wine is refreshing with flavors of lemon, pear and mango with a hint of green apple. The mouthfeel is lively but rich, and has a subtle creaminess. 100% stainless steel fermentation guarantees the fresh fruit character that fans of this wine have come to appreciate over the years. This classic, Loire Valley-style wine is excellent when paired with fresh oysters, seafood, or just about anything!

Dry farmed without chemicals at the base of Enlightenment Mountain in gravelly volcanic soils, we are amazed at the concentration and intensity in the fruit from these vines.
- Item #: i_268770Bottle Size: 750mlTerraces Winery has come out with a Chenin Blanc that tastes unlike anything we've had out of California in several years; so we have to ask ourselves...how do they do it?!?!? Winemaker Timm Crull loves to drink clean, vibrant white wines from France. So he doesn’t just make a wine because the grapes are available; he makes delicious wine because QUALITY grapes are available, and he knows what to do with them! Sourced from the cool region of Clarksburg (east of Napa), the wine does not go through secondary fermentation in order to retain fresh acidity and sees only 6 months in neutral barrels to promote texture. Clean and bright with a pale straw hue, the delicate aromas of lemon zest, underripe peach, crisp green apple, guava, and orange blossom draw you into the glass. The palate is light bodied with bright acidity dancing across the tongue giving way to a subtle chalky minerality, crisp citrus fruit and dainty honeysuckle. The long dry finish leaves your palate refreshed and eager for another sip. Truly the perfect Summer wine. Drink now to 3-5 years.
