Tasting Notes

Instantly impressive, the 2019 Granite Chenin Blanc begins with floral and dusty citrus blossom elements before offering up fantastically balanced citrus and mineral appeal. Medium-bodied, the wine possesses terrific action on the palate with succulent acidity and a frame of seductive mineral tension that is both food-friendly and slightly phenolic. The wine unfolds across the mid-palate and somersaults in the mouth before offering a long, textural finish that is absolutely stunning. Bravo! My problem will be trying to keep my hands off this bottle if I see it in the cellar.

Floral and spice notes waft from the glass of this sleek, mouthwatering white, transitioning to a silky mix of Asian pear, pickled ginger, jasmine and candied blood orange peel flavors on the palate. Medium-bodied, finely-knit and racy, graphite and mineral accents echo on the finish. Drink now through 2026.

The 2019 Chenin Granite is clean and focused on the nose with apple blossom, yellow plum and honeysuckle scents. Its initial bashfulness soon gives way to a louder voice. The palate is taut and focused on the entry, and delivers orange peel, marmalade and hints of stem ginger and dried honey toward the waxy-textured finish. Give this 2–3 years in bottle because there is substance here, and it has a lot to give.
