J. Mourat Chenin De Jardin 2020
|Available in store:||Check availability|
The 2020 Chenin de Jardin is made from 100% Chenin Blanc. The grapes are grown on rhyolite and schist soil. (For those of you, like me, for whom rhyolite is not a household name, it is an igneous volcanic rock made of quartz, sanidine and other minerals.) The Chenin de Jardin is a perfect example of the fine line that Chenin can walk with ripe honeyed apples, citrus, and tropical fruit on one side and high acidity with a strong strain of minerality running through on the other. Although many people think white wine doesn’t pair well with meat, we think Chenin Blanc proves them wrong. Pair the Chenin du Jardin with Roast Pork and Caramelized Apples and Shallots. The acidity cuts right through the fat of the pork—so delicious!
