Reviews
• Vinous / Antonio Galloni: 90 The 2015 Chenin Blanc Jurassic Park is soft and understated, with plenty of varietal character and terrific poise. There is a good bit of energy here, especially within the context of the year.
• Robert Parker: 91 A lovely offering which will appeal to lovers of the dry whites being produced in contemporary Anjou, the 2015 Chenin Blanc Jurassic Park from Kunin Wines offers up an incipiently complex nose of lemon rind, white peach, apple skin and honey, framed by a nutty top note of light reduction. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, racy and saline, with lovely concentration and purity and a crisp, mineral finish.
