Darling Cellars Classic Chenin Blanc Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Explosion of tropical and citrus notes on your nose that follow through on your mid palate. Well structured mid palate with a fresh citrus lingering aftertaste covered by pineapple and lemony undertones.

Enjoy with light fruit salad or sushi!
