Road 13 Chip Off The Old Block Chenin Blanc 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaChip Off The Old Block is the lighter, more youthful, more accessible version of their Old Vines Chenin. This is from estate fruit on the Golden Mile Bench, as well as contracted fruit. Orchard fruit forward, with chenin's characteristic waxy core intact, this is flush with yellow apples, yellow plums, jasmine blossoms, white peaches on a softer, just off dry palate. Chenin is splashed with orange muscat and viognier here, upping that florality.Tasted: 07 July 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 17.39 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
