2021 Chenin Blanc
This is a young vineyard block. Now in its second year of fruit production, this wine is showing some wonderful varietal characteristics, and proving that Chenin Blanc has a home at Buttonwood. The wine is bright. It springs from the glass with lime blossom, green pineapple, crisp pear, bruised herbs and petrichor. It is very fresh and energetic, balancing a medium weight palate laden with early spring peaches, pineapple guava, key lime custard and creamy almond nougat. The finish lifts away from the palate with meyer lemon zest and an oyster-shell minerality.
