Regular priceSale price
Tasting Notes:Poised, mouthwatering, and crisp, this dry Chenin Blanc has notes of pear, quince, lemon custard, and sourdough. With a delicious ocean breeze salinity, it is both light on its feet and textural, with excellent midpalate acid. A mineral-driven, flinty wine, it has elegant lift and length.
Winemaking:Native yeast. Whole-cluster pressed. Fermented in neutral French oak puncheons. Aged in neutral French oak for 11 months. Unfined and unfiltered.
Vintage: 2019 was a long, cool growing season, allowing for excellent hangtime and flavor development at moderate Brix.
