“Maritime” Chenin Blanc | Metzer Family Wines

100% Chenin from 35 year old bush vines in a coastal vineyard heavily influenced by the cool south-easters blowing off the Atlantic ocean. The vineyard’s pure fruit quality radiates through – bright stone fruit, spice and orange blossom, a rich texture and sort refreshing acidity – delicious now but with potential for keeping.
