2020 "Funky & Fearless" Chenin Blanc

2020 "Funky & Fearless" Chenin Blanc

IN OUR EYES CHENIN BLANC IS THE INDISPUTABLE STAR VARIETY OF THE SWAN VALLEY / DISTRICT.   THIS IS WHY WE ARE SHOWING A NUMBER OF VINEYARDS AND A NUMBER OF EXPRESSIONS.  THE VINES ARE A LITTLE HARD TO MANAGE BUT THE RESULTS ARE SO WORTH IT, THE FRUIT IS SUPER VERSATILE. THIS FRUIT COMES FROM 25+ YEAR OLD 'ROCKETS' VINEYARD IN UPPER SWAN ON SWAN VALLEY LOAM.  

 

WHOLE BUNCH PRESSED TO OLD OAK.  NATURAL HIGH SOLIDS FERMENT, MONTHLY LEES STIRRING.  LOWER SO2 MAXIMISES FRUIT EXPRESSION.  PASSION FRUIT AND LEMON / LIME PITH AT ITS CORE, WAXY AND MEALY CHARACTERS WITH A LITTLE PRESERVED LEMON.  A BIT OF FUNK, A BIT MORE TEXTURE, FOCUSED CITRUSSY ACID PULLS IT THROUGH.
