Review:
The 2018 Chenin Blanc Buddha's Dharma offers notable character and pedigree. Dried pear, spice, menthol, chamomile, dried herbs and almond all grace this very pretty, nuanced Chenin. Vinification and aging in oak, with bit of concrete, brings out slightly oxidative qualities that are so complementary to varietal Chenin flavors.
