Sunday afternoon..... What better way to spend a Spring like day with friends, family, 4doz Pacific Oysters, a stunning bottle of 2009 Clos de Ste. Anne Chenin Blanc and sitting at Wainui beach gazing into the horizon.

2009 Clos de Ste. Anne Chenin Blanc is our new addition to the Clos de Ste. Anne family. This wine presents itself with chipped stone minerality, aromas of pear, honey & bees wax and a hint of warm wool and starched linen. The savory acidity and austere dry textured tannin are refreshing while a quince-like fruit flavour gives lift and great length to the overall taste.
This wine with the oysters and the ocean breeze is a dreamy match that gave us not only a visual treat of paradise but a taste of satisfaction while drifting into a Sunday afternoon coma.
