Chenin Blanc 2015

Birichino

We are delighted to release our third vintage from what are considered old vines in Southern California: 33 year-old vine chenin planted in the Late Disco era on its own roots at 1100’ elevation. This sandy, rocky dinosaur boneyard vineyard has rapidly become one of the more sought-after sites for this noble variety on the Left Coast, and has the unusual atmospheric element of being surrounded by an active oilfield, suggesting deep geologic origins for its focused, mineral aspect.
