Foxen Ernesto Wickenden Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley|
Wine EnthusiastComing from old vines, this bottling is typically one of the more compelling non-Chardonnays from Santa Barbara County. This vintage shows light lemon, chalk, white peach and Asian pear on the nose. The palate is grippy as ever, with lemon-lime acidity and a green-pear flavor.
Wine SpectatorRobust and flavorful, offering apricot, white peach and yellow apple flavors accented by notes of lanolin and fresh chamomile, set on a medium body, with slightly coarse acidity. Drink now. 1,100 cases made.
