90 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, showing a gentle texture, with intense acidity giving energy to the flavors of yellow apple, lime and honeysuckle. Salty mineral elements emerge midpalate, leaving a savory aftertaste. *Smart Buy, #65 on The Top 100 Wines of 2019* (AZ)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: This project is headed by Vincent Carême of Loire Valley fame. Inspired by the South African landscape (and perhaps also by his wife, Tania, who hails from the Cape region), he has decided to create this southern expression of Chenin Blanc.

Neal Martin writes: "Adi Badenhorst is the charismatic winemaker who alongside Eben Sadie has put Swartland on the map. Outspoken, opinionated and talented, his charisma rubs off upon the wines he creates. Moreover, they are available at extremely affordable prices and serve as a perfect introduction to the delights of Adi’s and Swartland’s wines."

93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chenin Blanc is one of the most expressive wines in the Lieu Dit range. Perfumed, generous and inviting, the 2017 has so much to offer. The Chenin emerges from Happy Canyon Vineyard, where the first Chenin was planted in an appellation that is better known for its Bordeaux varieties. Justin Willett fermented the 2017 in stainless steel and aged the wine in neutral oak.

93 points James Suckling: "This is very old chenin, planted around 1960, and it has a terrific fusion of lemons, apples and pears with a succulent, sturdy, and dense feel to the palate and plenty of smooth-honed texture. Impressive. Drink or hold. " (09/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chenin Blanc comes from a 47-year-old dry-farmed vineyard. It was barrel fermented and bottled unfiltered. The nose opens slowly, giving up minerally aromas of crushed stone, sliced Bosc pear, fresh white blossoms and bruised red apple. It’s revea...

Vinous: "The 2019 Secateurs, Badenhorst’s super-successful entry-level label, comes from 26 Swartland vineyards and is matured in a combination of concrete and foudres. The nose grabs you by the olfactory senses with pineapple, saffron and tangerine aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, nice focus and good weight on the simple but crisp lime and pineapple finish. Delicious and a great value to boot.

Foxen co-founder Dick Doré is a sixth-generation Santa Barbara native, the winery bearing the name of a great-great-great-grandfather who set anchor off the coast here in the 19th century and never left (hence the distinctive Foxen logo). The winery was one of the first established in Santa Barbara County in the early 1980s, and he and winemaker Bill Wathen have been producing reference point single-vineyard wines from this neighborhood ever since. Their Chenin Blanc hails from the Ernesto Wickenden vineyard, a plot of old vines planted in 1966. The wine...

95 points Decanter: "A brilliant value Chenin that delivers the moreish combination of steely acidity with sweet peaches and pear creaminess. There is a touch of residual sugar in this - no more than 9g/l - but it is only discernible through the weight of fruit, never through sweetness. The vines are all aged between 30 and 40 years old, from a certified organic vineyard (farmed biodynamically). Drunk over a family lunch with heaped plates of langoustines and prawns, topped of with baguette and salty butter. Heaven, from an estate that I don't know well ...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This dry and complex wine offers gentle aromas of white flowers, crisp celery and green apples followed by a tangy white-peach flavor. Lifted acidity lends great balance in this rather light-bodied, bright and delicious offering. *Best Buy* (JG)" (03/2020) Connoisseurs Guide: "With a flowery overlay to its directly fruity aromas of ripe melons and white peaches, Dry Creek Vineyards' 2018 edition is a nicely filled Chenin Blanc that, while dry, consistently conveys so much persistent fruit that it intimates a sensation of jui...

90 points Vinous: "The 2019 Kloof Street Chenin Blanc underwent a natural ferment with minimal SO2 addition. It has a knockout bouquet for an entry-level Chenin, featuring beautiful orange blossom and apricot scents mixed with hints of lemon thyme. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and impressive tension and energy. Poised all the way through to the finish, this is a superb Kloof Street Chenin Blanc that serves as a perfect introduction to Chris and Andrea Mullineux’s wines. (NM)" (11/2019)

2018 Château d'Epiré Savennières
New!
Chateau d’Epiré is an 11 hectare estate. This bottling is sourced from 30- 55-year- old vines in schist soils. From importer Kermit Lynch: "Despite the beauty and timelessness of the building structures, it is the vineyard for which the domaine is best known. The Savennières from Epiré is regarded as Grand Cru. The domaine works primarily three parcels: La Croix Picot, Le Parc, and Le Hu-Boyau. It is the latter that sits just above another famous vineyard, La Coulée de Serrant. The soils here are rich, and the microclimate is ideal. Southern and south-ea...

New!
This 100% Chenin Blanc comes from the nearly 40-year-old Saini Vineyard.

In Santa Ynez, the Jurassic Park Vineyard sits at 335 meters elevation on sandy, well-drained limestone-laden soils atop the playground of the dinosaurs of the Jurassic era. Planted in 1978, the age of this un-grafted Chenin vineyard qualifies it as "old" in Southern California. They treat it gently, ferment it with native yeasts, and keep it company through the winter. Each vintage shows them a new dimension and a new potential expression of this place. Winery note: "This sandy, rocky dinosaur boneyard vineyard has rapidly become one of the more sought-...

About this producer: "Winemaker Nathan Kandler stands firmly by his belief that the winemaker's ultimate mission is to translate the voice of the soil into the glass. But not all vineyards are created equal, and here enters Nathan's keen eye for finding the magical combination of variety, climate and soil. In California’s case, he believes the most special sites are often found outside of the iconic regions (Napa, Russian River, etc.). For Precedent, his first independent effort (his day job is as Associate Winemaker at Thomas Fogarty) he has found 3 uni...

91 points Winedoctor.com: "This is 100% Chenin Blanc, from limestone soils. It is already in bottle. The nose is softly fragrant, with a gentle citrus-fruit substance, dressed with pretty and expressive notes of perfumed chalk. A similarly charming palate follows, with a gentle white peach and apricot character. Through the middle it feels fresh and plump, but overall the style is reserved, with restrained fruit but a nice phenolic backbone. Pretty, but it doesn't seem to communicate the generosity of the vintage." 91/100 (February 2019)
