Chenin Blanc – Biltmore Estate Winery

Our wine tonight is the limited release Chenin Blanc from Biltmore Estate Winery in Asheville, North Carolina.

Vintage 2019

Limited Release.

Fruit harvested from partner growers in California.

Pale gold in color.

Expressively floral bouquet and pleasantly aromatic of honeysuckle and lilac.

Semi-sweet on the tongue exhibiting crisp acidity. 4.1% RS

Citrusy layered on the palate with notes of lemon-lime, pink grapefruit, key lime, and star fruit, finishing with lingering tart notes of green apple and bosc pear.

12.5% ABV

$17 a bottle (at the winery).

The 2019 is perhaps more pleasantly balanced than the 2017 and 2018 vintages. This vintage is delightfully refreshing and elegantly balanced.

Winery Escapades scores 90 points.

Gold Medal worthy.

We enjoyed this vintage, perhaps more so than the 2017 Chinen Blanc from Biltmore. We still feel it was lacking some balance.
