Paumanok Vineyards, North Fork of Long Island (New York) Chenin Blanc 2020

($26):  Paumanok Vineyards excels with Chenin Blanc.  It’s always a delight.  The 2020 is no exception.  Crisp with a delicate fruitiness, it conveys the barest hint of sweetness.  Its vibrant and balancing acidity, along with a modest 11 percent-stated alcohol, makes it an exciting wine to pair with sushi, spicy Asian fare, BBQ, or just sipping it as an aperitif.  You get the idea.  It’s a versatile wine.
