Norgard Farms Chenin Blanc 2018
This wine comes exclusively from Tim Norgard’s Sterling Ranch just outside of Ukiah in Mendocino County. Older vines planted in 1980 on the now little used AXR1 rootstock still thrive there in the Mendocino County soils. The grapes were picked at lower brix, crushed and left on skins for a day, pressed, and fermented in a mix of French Oak, stainless-steel barrels, and concrete egg. Aged on lees 11 months, the wine has vibrant acidity and excellent phenolic structure, with notes of honeycomb, lemon curd, and jasmine.
