ORR WINES Chenin Blanc 'Old Vines' 2015

The 2015 Orr Wines 'Old Vines' Chenin Blanc is an outstanding effort from superstar winemaker Erica Orr. Orr has had previous stints at some really famous spots including Rudd Estate, Cain Vineyard, Domaine Dujac, and Yering Station. In the glass aromatics are slowly released after a one hour decant. The wine begins with a bouquet of unripe pear, cantaloupe, and lemongrass with hints of beeswax. There are flavors of honeydew melon, Japanese pear, and starfruit with a nutmeg edge. This is balanced wine that needs a bit of warming up to be fully expressive. There is nice weight and texture on the mid-palate that impresses. This is a really nice value at this price point.
