Ballentine Vineyards Chenin Blanc 2010

Received through Wine of the Month Club, Retail $15.99

Aaron:  I was surprised by how much I liked this wine.  Oak molded with melon on the nose to develop a bold smell.  Crisp and tangy, the lemon and tangerine flavors were very refreshing.  Overall, this wine was strong on the palate with smooth flavors.  93 points

Teri: This is a beautiful wine that is full and smooth but still light and crisp. Flavors of tangerine and melon open up further to granny smith apple. This light crisp and flavorful wine will pair well with creamy sauces or stand alone perfectly as a summer drinking wine. 91 points
