The 2020 Dry Creek Vineyard Dry Chenin Blanc drinks fresh, clean, and bright. This wine offers lovely aromas and flavors of dried earth, savory spices, and ripe melon. Enjoy it with pan-fried Petrale sole over sesame rice and a sprinkle of dried red pepper flakes. (Tasted: May 2, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

A touch of honey highlights this intriguing, light-bodied wine as it blends fruit and mineral flavors for a complex expression. It is consistently well made year after year.
Fermented in 100% stainless steel barrels, this beautiful wine is wonderfully bright and consistent vintage after vintage. At first swirl, aromatics of honeydew, peach and mango spring forward from the glass with floral notes of orange blossom and honeysuckle. On the palate, the wine has refreshing flavors of watermelon, Meyer lemon and cucumber with hints of white tea and white pepper. The mouthfeel is soft but inviting, with a voluptuous texture.
This classic, Loire Valley-style wine is excellent when paired with fresh oysters, seafood, or just about anything.
