Dry Creek Vineyard 2011 Dry Chenin Blanc Clarksburg


This versatile white is perfect for summertime picnics. It’s fairly dry, but pairing it with food brings out the ripe fruit flavors. I loved the tangy apple, ripe pear, and nectarine notes so nicely highlighted by tropical notes and moderate spice. Try it with different dishes, like a lobster roll, spring rolls, Asian stir-fries, chicken and fruit salads, fried chicken, or quesadillas with spicy salsa and guacamole. Producing Chenin Blanc since 1972, Dry Creek is renowned for the quality of this exemplary variety. At $12 retail, a steal for the quality, it’s available online at
