Last of my own stock of Paul Gregutt’s old vine Chenin blanc from Washington state. The venture is now defunct, alas. Pale yellow white, excellent clarity. Floral and funk notes in nose. Honey peach-apricot and cantaloupe flavors, slight skin astringency in finish, lemony aftertaste with a tinge of cantaloupe-apricot. Great length of flavors, good acidity but lacks a bit of needed crispness. And in the future, please help support your local old vine Chenin blanc producer. The world deserves more quality wines like this.

Like to see this in a cooler vintage. more acid, edge and interestingly enough...aromatics. Flowers, fruit, anything but reduction...
