Notes "Quest-worthy Chenin Blanc, as if made by middle earth creatures in a secret winery behind a waterfall guarded by a dragon.
Smile driven wine.
Flavors of Asian Pear, new wool, squeaky chair lift snow, and peppery young olive oil.
You'll think we made a deal with the devil.
Pair with steamed mussels and fries, herb crusted pork loin, and giant turkey legs." - Hardy Wallace
