Chenin Blanc - 2017
A bodyslam of juicy mandarin peel, savory tannins, and texture for days — perhaps the closest you will come to hotboxing Chenin Blanc.

Mike Lucia is a master tinkerer with a natural camp ethos. This wine is perfectly emblematic: he gives the whole Chenin Blanc clusters a carbonic soak, rare in white wine production, highlighting its savory aspects and amplifying complexity. From the organically farmed Heringer Vineyard, which runs along the Clarksburg delta. 12.4% alcohol.
