Chenin Blanc – Biltmore Estate

Our wine tonight is the limited release Chenin Blanc from Biltmore Estate Winery in Asheville, North Carolina. 

Vintage 2019

Limited Release.

Fruit harvested from partner growers in California. 

Pale gold in color. 

Expressively floral bouquet with pleasantly aromatic hints of honeysuckle and lilac, plus lemon, mango, and pink grapefruit.

Semi-sweet on the tongue exhibiting crisp acidity.

Citrus notes layer the palate with lemon and lime, mango, pink grapefruit, star fruit, and key lime pie, finishing with lingering tart notes of green apple and bosc pear.

12.5% ABV

$17 a bottle (at the winery). 

The 2019 is perhaps more pleasantly balanced than the 2017 and 2018 vintages. This vintage is delightfully refreshing and elegantly balanced. 

Winery Escapades scores 90 points. 

Gold Medal worthy.
