2020 APERTURE BARREL-FERMENTED CHENIN BLANC – SOLD OUT


What began as a small-batch wine crafted for the perfect pairing with fresh seafood at one of winemaker Jesse Katz’s favorite hometown restaurants has turned into a classic favorite. Coming from the rich clay loam soils of an old vine California Chenin Blanc site, planted in the 1940s,  this vibrant wine showcases notes of passion fruit, nectarines, and honeysuckle with brightly lifted acidity giving way to a round, smooth mouthfeel. 


 

“A beautiful example of the variety, the 2020 Chenin Blanc has plenty of citrus and dried herb aromatics as well as a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style on the palate that offers remarkable purity of fruit.” 90 points – Jeb Dunnuck
