Santa Julia Chenin Blanc: a white to delight

Santa Julia Chenin Blanc 2016
Santa Julia Winery – Familia Zuccardi
Maipú – Mendoza
SAQ Price: $ 11,65

Looking for a fresh, affordable and different white wine? Santa Julia offers this delicate Chenin Blanc that stands out for its perfume and its excellent price-quality ratio.
In the nose it sourrounds us with its pleasant notes of peach, pear, white flowers and grapefruit. In the mouth it is also seductive, its fruity character persists besides being pleasantly refreshing. A wine that can be enjoyed on several occasions: as a simple appetizer or to marry with refined dishes such as risottos, pastas, seafood in lemon sauces or summer salads.
I invite you to discover this variety a little underestimated. Perhaps it has not had in history the reputation and glory like other white varieties had, but it is very versatile, intense, perfumed and generous. Mendoza is one of those places where it was able to adapt splendorously and today, wineries like Santa Julia seek to launch it and spread it among the palates of the world! (MLF).
