Lieu Dit, Chenin Blanc

About the Wine:
The 2017 Chenin Blanc features scents of baker's yeast, cheese rind, toast, candle wax and smoke/gunflint accents with red apple skin, crushed stone and some woolly funkiness in the background. It's light to medium-bodied, earthy and mineral-driven in the mouth with tangy acidity and a long, textured finish. 1,500 cases produced.
About the Producer:
Two best friends, Justin Willett and Eric Railsback, who bonded over wine decided to create their own production in Santa Barbara after travelling to France. They were attracted to the micro-climates and marine sediment rich soils. 
Technical Info:
A combination of tank and barrel fermentation was used to produce our Chenin Blanc. The wine then spent seven months in neutral French oak and was racked to stainless steel prior to bottling.
Once pressed, the juice is then tank fermented using only native yeast. The wine overwinters in neutral oak barrels, building complexity, definition and verve. In the spring, the wine is racked back to a stainless tank prior to bottling, resulting in a fresh, mouthwatering wine.
