"This beautiful wine is wonderfully consistent vintage after vintage. At first swirl, aromatics of white pear, pineapple and banana spring forward from the glass. On the palate, the wine is refreshing with flavors of ripe tangerine and peaches. The mouthfeel is lively, but rich and has a subtle creaminess."-Winemaker's Notes

"In 1972, when David S. Stare opened the doors to Dry Creek Vineyard, it was the first new winery to be built in the Valley since Prohibition. Dry Creek created the first Sonoma Fume Blanc, originated the Dry Creek Valley AVA, and was an early advocate for Bordeaux-style blending.
Today, Dry Creek Vineyard is committed to vineyard diversity, vinifying individual lots of fruit separately, and then blending carefully for each final cuvee. Dry Creek Vineyard is also a leader in the stewardship of pre-Prohibition Zinfandel vines and vineyards, and has isolated a clone, called the "Heritage Clone," which is bottled separately from their "Old Vines" Zinfandel (containing wine only from vines no younger than 50 years old), and which has made very promising wines."-Winery Notes

Crisp, refreshing, delicious - Wonderfully dry without sourness and excessive acidity, this lovely wine has notes of pear and apple, so enjoyable with seafood or just on an afternoon sitting on the patio. Glad I tried it!

Really nice Chenin Blanc - If you're looking for a nice dry all-purpose white wine, this is it. And the price is really great, as well. I bought a case, based only on the fact that I know Dry Creek Vineyards is a top quality producer, and I'm absolutely delighted.
