Tower 15, 2020 Chenin Blanc
Our Tower 15, 2020 Chenin Blanc is versatile in style and highlighted by bright acidity, proving to be a wine for every occasion. The small quantity of grapes are sustainably farmed and sourced from Jurassic Park Vineyard, producing a textured wine with abundant minerality and exotic fruit. The grapes for this wine were hand picked and gently pressed into a small stainless steel tank. After 2 day of settling, the juice was racked off its lees into a second tank and then barreled into 100% stainless steel barrels. Once fermantation began, the barrels were stirred daily with a concerted effort to keep the temperature below 68°F. When fermentation completed, the drums were self-topped via gravity. This wine continued to age in stainless steel barrels for 120 days.
It shows nuanced layers of citrus peel, peach, and wet stone that remain light-bodied with crisp ripe acidity and spice hinting towards applesauce flavors.
