A "natural" wine, whatever that means. It is an unusual take on Chenin Blanc. Tasted a wine store tasting, this was my second time getting an opportunity to try this and it seemed like it has improved (or this was a better bottle). Lighter in color than a previous bottle, so perhaps the first bottle had been oxidized a bit. Light gold, clear and bright. The nose is different with cardamom, and orange pith. On the palate, this has tart oranges. Strong acidity. 12% Alc. It finishes a bit salty which is different and probably makes it more food friendly. It was priced at $12 on close out which is a nice value. Chenin Blanc can age, but I think this would be best be consumed in the next year.
