Absolutely, The Best Under $15 White Wine Today

The quest to discover the greatest value and top all-purpose white came to a surprising end this week.  

No, it is neither a slick Chardonnay or fruity Pinot Gris nor is it among my long-time go-to whites, Sauvignon Blanc and Grenache Blanc.

It is made from the most underrated, overlooked variety and by a winery with an amazingly consistent track record.

The wine: 2016 Chenin Blanc,  Dry Creek Vineyards

No, this is not an April Fool’s Joke.

It is the most versatile, most subtle, most intricate, most complex and most complete white wine under $15.

It is the complete package:

Authentic with real history

True to type

Subtle in its aromatics, multi-leveled in flavors

Complex but without heavy oak; lingering, vibrant palate-cleansing finish

Shows old vine character with its lush texture

With genuine minerality
