This Chenin Blanc-based wine, with 11% Sémillon, opens with slightly oxidized and toasty notes of red apple skin, spiced orange, buttered brioche and rich honeydew. It's plush and creamy in feel, with ample acidity that helps to lift the palate through the close. Rich fruit flavors abound, while a sweet-spice flavor lingers on the close. Drink now.
