The 2019 Gros Ventre Chenin Blanc hails from a small vineyard in the tiny Merritt Island appellation in Clarksburg, which has been farmed by the Wilson family since 1921. This wine offers aromas of Nashi pear, citrus peel, Jasmine, and sweet spice. It has medium weight on the palate and a crisp, fresh finish, and pairs with oysters and white fish. For folks looking for a lower alcohol wine, this Chenin Blanc is only 11.9% alcohol.
