Giunta Chenin Blanc
notes from the importer:
Daniel Brennan discovered New Zealand wines at his family restaurant in Philly. His story and wines are all about the people who inspire him, the places he has been. Giunta wines are young and fresh, typically sold straight into restaurants. The name is special to Daniels heritage. It is the family name of his sicilian Great Grandparents and translates to a “good addition to the family”.
CHENIN BLANC 2020
We’re working with a great husband/wife team at the Two Terraces Vineyard, they are in the process of converting their vineyard to organics and grow a very limited amount of Chenin Blanc. This Chenin has grainy seeds of red apple, lightly floral nose, with hints of cinnamon glazed pears. The palate has a soft approach with a rich, even spicy mid-palate. While the fruit is opulent and soft in portions it also has firm acidity with a long crisp finish resulting in a wine that will drink well young but age for many years to come.
