Van Loveren Five’s Reserve Chenin Blanc 2021

Great example of a fresh and tropical Chenin Blanc. The grapes for the 2020 Chenin release from Fives Reserve were hand harvested from older vines (nearly 20 years old!) which were grown on well-draining alluvial soils. Modern techniques in the winery allowed the varietal character of the grapes to shine, producing a wine that is reminiscent of the area. Notes of guava, grapefruit, and peach are most obvious. Try it with pulled pork tacos topped with a tropical fruit salsa for a match made in heaven.
