Vino Volta Funky and Fearless Chenin Blanc 2019: Review

For me any wine made from chenin blanc is bound to be compared to the Vouvray wines of the Loire Valley. Vino Volta Funky and Fearless Chenin Blanc goes out to be different to its more famous French counterpart. It is interesting wine whose flavours are dominated by pear and pear drops. The flavour profile changes a lot with temperature. At fridge cold the acidity is heightened and maybe some gooseberry notes too though they never dominate the pear. it tastes wild at that temperature. As is warms it becomes less angular and becomes more smooth even waxy. The pear notes stay there, with maybe a hint of lemon or green melon. I enjoyed this. Drink cool but not fridge cold.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
