Road 13 Chip Off The Old Block Chenin Blanc 2020

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaChip Off the Old Block comes from cuttings off the original old vine 1968 plantings. Lemon verbena, green apple, fresh almond, lemon pith flood the creamy palate, with a sheen of that characteristic chenin waxiness. The finish is a bit bitter green and tight, and then lingering with parmesan cheese, which offsets some of the charming characters earlier on, and perhaps reflective of the early pick / youthful grapes. Regardless, this Chip is on the right track, and will be one to watch.Tasted: 02 May 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 16.97 BCLS Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
