A bright, well-balanced Chenin Blanc, citrus-focused with flavors of honeycomb, crushed stone and salty minerality.

Variety: 100% Chenin Blanc
Vineyard: Rorick Estate Vineyard
Location: Sierra Foothills, CA
Alcohol: 11.58%

Aromas of bright citrus and lanolin are laid over a taut framework of acidity; on the palate flavors of meyer lemon, honeycomb and crushed stone combine with a salty minerality.

Fruit was hand-picked and allowed to ferment in neutral barriques before being racked off its lees after 6 months, seeing a total of 14 months elevage. Wine is bottled unfined & unfiltered.

Rorick estate vineyard in Calaveras County sits at 2000ft elevation, on soils comprised of a layer of schist over dolomite-rich limestone.
