Clear, light wheat straw color. Strong vegetative aromas including dry “horse hay,” pear, unripe melon and green apples with a little lime citrus, tropical fruit and yeasty whiffs. Smooth, dry, mineral, medium body and a fine 400-grit texture. Potent pear, cinnamon, and French tarragon flavors, crisp acidity and a pungent tasting long finish with tastes of apricot and pine nuts all wrapped around a magnificent mineral structure. Dry Chenin Blanc that was a perfect pairing with the salad and a delightful sipping wine after the meal.
