Produced from the revered Lujan de Cuyo and Mendoza, Argentina, the Revancha 2018 ‘La Primera’ Chenin Blanc is a beautiful white wine packed with ripe peachy fruit and a mouth-wateringly fresh palate. Chenin Blanc is a somewhat unusual variety in Argentina, but winemaker Roberto de la Mota managed to track down a high-altitude site in Mendoza (a site where he first made wine in 1985 when working for Weinert with his father), and was delighted to find some Chenin Blanc still remained on the property. This wine is the delicious result, with scents of lemon, spring flowers and wild herbs, and fresh, elegant, complex flavors of citrus, minerality, nuts and herbs that linger on the finish. Enjoy!
