Darling Axle Chenin Blanc, 2018

Darling Axle Chenin Blanc, 2018

Lively and rich, straw and lychee with a touch of the sweet of a custard apple.  A dreamlike 12.5% for lunch.  Wonderful depth on the palate as a sipper (a lingering lemon blossom finish) but superior in its food friendly versatility whether cheese, salad, cured meats or fish.  An unusual balancing act of heavyweight Chenin and Alsace-ish etherealness.  Plus you can call it darling.

 

Price: Kits Wine Cellar at $34 but “just over” $30 with a six bottle discount.

 

Market Liquidity: Easily as (or more) enjoyable as its (pricier) Anjou cousins.
