I brought this to dinner with a couple that usually take a small pour of my whites and move quickly on.  Not this time.  They both went back for seconds, which is of course, the best compliment to the wine.  Really in a good place, but it is Chenin Blanc, so it has a long life ahead of it.  Light golden in color.  The nose has a lovely salinity along with some apricots and orange peel.  Also a slight metallic minerality (in a good way).  On the palate, be forewarned, this is sweet.  Probably a bit more than off dry.  But it is lovely and deft and light on its feet.  The orange peel comes thru along with some simple syrup.  There is a great minerality as well.  Enough acidity to make it all work.  Long finish.  This wine is young and drinking well now, but it should last decades.  It went great with some rosemary flat breads, and should be quite versatile with lighter and/or spicier foods.
