A generous amount of Chenin Blanc finishes out an already wonderful Riesling. This balances the acid and sugar of the Riesling, while filling the nose with some savory fruit. This wine makes a great summer sipper and is a true crowd-pleaser. It's priced for everyday drinking and perfect for parties.

Wow! Quite possibly the most complex Riesling based wine I've had. Of course the Chenin Blanc is playing a respectable role in this wine, and truly an exciting twist. Citrus and peaches abound, as well as white flowers, and a hint of honey. There is a presence of fresh elastomer, but when mixed with the fresh fruit it ends up adding to this rather complex white wine. I paired this wine with spicy/smokey Asian style wings, and it was amazing. I can't wait to try the 459 that's on its way to my home as I type this. Great value!

I've never been an enthusiast of white wines. I prefer a light red on summer afternoons, but this one has caused me to rethink my prejudice. It is soft, luscious, and ultimately satisfying. Drink a cool glass on the deck, by the pool, or do as my wife and I do, take a bottle out on the pontoon and sip while floating around the lake. Wonderful. Tops.

If I am having a white wine, it needs to be something robust - and Riesling has never done it for me. I bought a bottle from the site as part of a sampler I created for myself and we definitely weren't disappointed. The smoothness, the fruit, the crisp and refreshing nature - all perfected in this wine. Great value, waiting now to try lot 459 since this is sold out!

This is a nicely crafted wine with excellent acid to balance the sweetness. Wonderful as an aperitif or with a mild fish or some spicy asian food.

I love this wine! Bought a bottle at Costco and I loved it so much that I went back to Costco and they no longer had it in stock. I'm glad I looked up Cameron Hughes on line. I bought a case! So happy with my purchase.
