T. Berkley Chenin Blanc 2016

T. Berkley Chenin Blanc 2016

Mendocino County, California

$23.75 / each

Description:

This chalky, sea-salt scented Chenin Blanc hails from 30 year old vines in Mendocino and definitely channels the Loire Valley in France, which is the spiritual birthplace of the Chenin Blanc variety. Macerated on its skins and aged on its lees for 6 months, this wine possesses a fabulous creamy texture and broadness across the palate which elevates the wine without making it heavy or clunky. Barrel fermented and bottled unfiltered, this boutique bottling is a total slam dunk.
