Drink Seminar: Chenin Blanc: Live with Style, Age with Grace
Presenter: Tyler Dawson.
Winemakers love Chenin Blanc because it offers a blank canvas on which they can work: the grape is highly sensitive to geography and climate, so it expresses terroir easily, and it can be used to make wines of nearly any style, including dry, off-dry, sweet, and sparkling versions. It's also unusual among white grapes for its ability to age well: Chenin Blancs from France's Loire region have been known to evolve in the bottle for nearly a century. Tyler Dawson hosts this hour-long stand-up seminar on Chenin Blanc and its versatility as a culinary match. Guests will taste a range of wines from South Africa, France, BC, and more.
