Road 13 Chip Off The Old Block Chenin Blanc 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis wine comes from young vines that were planted by massale selection, with cuttings sourced from the old block of Chenin Blanc planted in 1968. There’s an immediate hit of sulphur dioxide on the nose, which is muting the underlying orchard fruit, but it does dissipate. It doesn’t scream chenin blanc, but it’s an approachable, fruity white that should have broad appeal, especially at this price. Splash decant for best results.Tasted: 11 July 2019Tasted by: Prices:
