Bellingham “Bernhard Series” Chenin Blanc, 2015


I was thumbing through a Decanter with about 150 Chenin recommendations and all I could easily source was this mid-priced bottle.  If they scored it 89 all I can say is wow, are BC wine drinkers ever missing out on some great CB, because we downed this bottle in record time.  Fresh, vibrant, zesty and social.


Fresh “unscrewed” cold it could be mistaken for an unoaked Chardonnay.  But there are delicious notes which run a wide gamut: caramel, coconut, maple syrup, butterscotch, and just a tinge of pine resin.  A most delectable Chenin and ludicrously food friendly (we drank it with a NY Times poached sole; scrumptious).


Price: $27 at Kitsilano Wine Cellars.


Market Liquidity: Cin cin to 89 pointers.
