03 L'Ecole No. 41, Walla Voila Chenin Blanc

A summery sweet orange bouquet wafts out of the glass and I know, if nothing else, this is going to be fun. Sparkling enough to compensate for a general lack of acidity, this chenin is saturated with orange, red grapefruit, and lemon popsicles on the tongue. If wine were a woman, this would be her lips.

My girlfriend thought it was too sweet. It went rather well with homemade Szechuan tofu lo-mein and avocado nori rolls. If it was warmer out, I'd drink this by the case. Thanks so much for visiting the site! I hope you enjoy the wine.

No, not the Loire, my man. L'Ecole 41 is in Washington. This is a bit flabbier than the Loire chenins I've had, but many others have compared this to good, off-dry Loire wine.
