I drank this recently when I tried to impress a group of friends. They are good friends and so they validated me, at least feigned excitement which to me, at times, is almost equal to genuine excitement. I told them this is a really good wine and I was not lying. This is a very very good wine. The conversation turned away from wine quickly and went deeply political so I needed a lot of this stunning chenin to stay afloat. Unfortunately I was not made any smarter like I hoped but the intensity of the moment was certainly smoothed. Perhaps it will soothe your own experiences too.
Please note, all orders come with a bag of chips!
