Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:
A shockingly expressive wine on both the nose and the palate, this is a Chenin Blanc made in a natural style that leans in the clean direction with no obvious sediment despite there having been no fining or filtration. A refreshing nose of sage, dried white flowers, hints of apricots and golden huckleberries. Crystal clear crisp acidity in the mouth with notes of citrus rinds and tropical fruits. A long dry finish with rounded tannins.
