One of the cool things about Vouvray is that it is made from Chenin Blanc grapes which more often than not can age well. When I walked into a local wine store and saw this for $20, it was well worth the flier. The only real problem is that there are no more. Made by American Peter Hahn and imported with Rosenthal, this is a lovely wine. Medium golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has nice minerality with hints of orange peel and a bit of apricot. Medium bodied and slightly viscous. At age 12, there is just a bit of sweetness here (some has probably faded since bottling). A nice depth and complexity. Flavors are mostly mineral, but some peach. Good acidity. Nice finish. This is drinking well but should be able to go another five to ten more years. It is food friendly and would work well with Thai of Chinese food.
Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass
