Langandreed chenin mendocino

Chenin Blanc, Mendocino County 2016

Lang & Reed Wine Co.

Our Lang & Reed 2016 Chenin Blanc – Mendocino is an aromatic joy of spring citrus blossom with touches of honeycomb wax. The fruit on the palate is bright tropical fruit with apple and quince supporting the rich and quenching flavors. There is a tender nature to the wine’s middle and finishing palate that is nicely supported with brisk acidity. This wine is perfect for spring and summer service, but if, by chance, a couple bottles are lost in the cellar, it will serve well for at least two to three more years, gaining in depth and nuance through bottle aging.

Reviews

  • "90 points. This white delivers fleshy but crisp citrus notes that have a savory side, with a saline touch and roasted herb accents, and mouthwatering melon and peach flavors at the core. Shows tremendous harmony and presence on the finish. Drink now. 208 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
  • "90 points. This outstanding wine is quite lush and ripe without being overtly fruity. It has enticing vanilla and coconut aromas, ripe honeydew melon and fig flavors and an exceptionally viscous and creamy mouthfeel. It's full bodied and very smooth in texture." (Wine Enthusiast)
