La PItchoune Chenin Blanc 2016

Merritt Island Chenin Blanc

Bright green-yellow in color.  Aromas of green melon, honeysuckle and lychee circulate with a flinty, woodsy charm.  Flavors of wild flower honey, passion fruit, sweet limes and crushed stone are brought together with a satiny texture and a persistent finish.  Designed to be enjoyed now and certain to age with grace, drink now or over the next 2 – 4 years.  Served slightly chilled.
