This Chenin wouldn't exist if you hadn't supported a talented young upstart winemaker

    • Pure, refreshing Chenin Blanc that tastes like you're chomping on some ripe tropical fruit and a juicy green apple – this is the whirlwind of fruit and zippiness that Alex always wanted to make.
    • As a fledgling winemaker at a fancy Napa winery, Alex never got to make her dream wine. She needed Angel-backing to be able to make this great white on her own.
    • It pays to have a Chenin with some serious bite sitting in the fridge. It's a clean white that pairs with almost everything and drinks great on its own, too, so you'll want to fill to the gills while it's in stock.

Aging advice
Let it sit a few days post shipment, then drink now!

Serving advice
Open a chilled bottle and pour straight into your glass.
