Valley Vineyards Wine Company 'The Royal ' Old Vines Steen Chenin Blanc 2018 Review

Everything about this wine is muted but that's not a bad thing. The nose opens with wet concrete and muted pear aromas, along with muted mint and melon. The palate is mineral prominent with wet stone that makes the wine soft and lean. Even though it’s not very expressive, it’s a great refresher poolside, or even incorporated in a spritz.
