Margins, Wilson Vineyards Block 20 Chenin Blanc 2018, Clarksburg, California
Tasting Note: A fruit-filled, Clarksburg chenin blanc with a yeasty character that is often found in natural wines.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of pineapple, peach stonefruit, quince, gooseberry, white fig and lemon-citrus peel.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied chenin blanc has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose along with notes of yeast and bread dough.
The wine is medium in acidity and completes with a medium-plus finish that completes with hints of acetone.
A chenin-blanc natural wine that differs from the chenin-blanc norm you are used to.
Bottle Note: Crafting wines using grapes from underrepresented regions, vineyards, and varietals. Sediment is expected from wines made with minimal intervention. Embrace it! Art by Buddy Whisler. Wine by Megan Bell.
