Not many wineries outside the Loire Valley make prime-time Chenin Blanc, but Foxen seems to be one of them. Vibrant and full of life, this Chenin Blanc displays scrumptious honeyed pear and citrus flavors along with an orange blossom-like floral perfume. Excellent balance and freshness in the mouth. Shows what a great varietal Chenin Blanc can be in the right hands. - HK 2015-03-23
