Try It: Blue Plate Chenin Blanc


I discovered a captivating and refreshingly inexpensive local white wine recently. 2010 Blue Plate Chenin Blanc, crafted in nearby Clarksburg, is composed of 86% Chenin Blanc, 12% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Chardonnay, and is delicate and light as a cloud on your palate. With its enticing citrusy, apricotty flavors, and an elusive, melon-mineral aftertaste, Blue Plate is a perfect sipping wine for a heat-smacked Sacramento evening.
