2016 Chenin Blanc - SRV
Young Chenin. This is the partial ML wine grown at the Sutter Ranch Vineyard deep in the Clarksburg AVA. Sand and clay and marine breezes sculpt this vineyard which allows us to present a very refreshing dry wine that retains all of the varietal characteristics of Chenin Blanc.
Picked September 1st and 3rd
Foot treaded, pressed to tank, racked to barrel and egg shaped tank.
Spontaneous fermentation, partial ML, bottled on January 25th.
This wine starts with crushed oyster shell, cilantro, lemon peel and lanolin. It's crisp, and lean on the palate with chalky minerality.
