The fruit for this 2016 Chenin Blanc came from three Central Coast vineyards; Martin Bros., Jurassic Park and Shell Creek. Andrew fermented and aged the final blend in 75% stainless steel and 25% barrels, including 10% in acacia wood. We've come to realize that most Chenins made from Jurassic Park Vineyard end up being great wines. The fact that winemaker, Andrew Jones included fruit from two other sites only helps to underscore the great quality of Jurassic. While this is a Chenin with a bit of a California feel, it still feels like the real deal from the Loire Valley with flavors of fresh pear, lemon and apple with a subtle nutty almond note on the finish. It's a great lighter bodied wine ideal for summer sipping or pairing with hard cheeses.
