    We haven't tried all the wines yet, but we are very impressed with what we have tried. Usuallly a chenin blanc is not one of our favorites, but this one went over very well. Thanks so much!

    I like a good Chenin Blanc as one of my favorite wines. This one did not quite live up to my expectations, as I like a hint more fruity flavor
