2018 Sunbreak Chenin Blanc


2018 Sunbreak Chenin Blanc


Here in the Convergence Zone, we love our Sunbreaks—those moments of light and warmth in between our persistent rain showers. Our 2018 Sunbreak captures this feeling with 100% Chenin Blanc. Aromas of Asian pear, white peach, papaya, grapefruit, honeysuckle and lemon verbena lead to juicy and vibrant flavors of pear and grape skins, peach stone and gravelly minerals. The finish picks up pear and peach liqueurs and hints of papaya and grapefruit peels, followed by a crisp finish. Sunbreak complements salads, fish, chicken, mild cheeses and sunbathing on the patio.
