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.
