ORR WINES Chenin Blanc 2016

The 2016 Orr Wines Chenin Blanc is an outstanding wine made by winemaker Erica Orr. This limited production Old Vine Chenin Blanc underwent native yeast fermentation prior to bottling. As this begins to open it releases delicate aromas of starfruit, white flowers, Granny Smith apple and suggestions of baking spices. There are ripe flavors of lemon zest, orchard fruits as well as suggestions of kumquat and grapefruit blossom. The lithe minerality shines, as does the lovely fruit weight on the mid-palate. I can see this wine cellaring well for five years or more. Only 230 cases made of this excellent wine.(Best 2017-2025) - April, 2017 (OB)
