40. L’Ecole No. 41 2012 Chenin Blanc , Columbia Valley, $15

L'Ecole No. 41 has been making Chenin Blanc since 1987.Best Buy! Few are as dedicated to the noble Chenin Blanc grape as L’Ecole’s Marty Clubb. This longtime Walla Walla Valley winery has produced a Chenin since 1987, and this bottling uses grapes from four vineyards in three appellations. It opens with aromas of grass, lime, apple blossom and pear, followed by refreshing flavors of white peach, Asian pear and Waldorf salad. Clean, bright acidity lifts the fruit in this deliciously dry white wine.

Production: 3,850 cases

Alcohol: 13.5%
