Jon and I picked up this wine on our California trip in Spring 2013, when we had the good fortune to visit Husch Vineyards.
I opened it up last night, after putting a couple of bottles of white wine in the fridge to chill a bit. Now that it’s spring, I’m enjoying my whites even more! I couldn’t be more pleased. It has flavors of pineapple blended with minerality, giving it a balanced flavor that I love. It has just a hint of sweetness on the tip of the tongue, with a lingering light honey syrup on the back of the palate.
Husch has been producing their Chenin Blanc since 1984, and they have clearly been doing something right. It is fermented in stainless steel tanks, and bottled only a few weeks after fermentation was complete.
Not to mention it is a great value at just $12.00 a bottle.
Have you had the Husch Vineyards Chenin Blanc? Have you been to the Anderson Valley?
