2020 "Nothing Wrong With Old Skool" Chenin Blanc

2020 "Nothing Wrong With Old Skool" Chenin Blanc

THE PREMISE FOR THIS WINE IS SIMPLE.  TAKE THE STAR VARIETY OF THE REGION, SOURCED FROM A GREAT OLD GINGIN VINEYARD, FERMENT IT SIMPLY AND THEN BOTTLE THE END-PRODUCT.    THIS PRESERVES THE BRIGHT FRUIT CHARACTERS, THE ACIDITY, THE STRUCTURE WITH NO ADDED COMPLEXITY. 


THE WINE IS BRIGHT, WITH LEMON, LIME CITRUS, GRANNY SMITH APPLE, DRIED HERB AND MORE SUBTLE TROPICAL CHARACTER.  IT HAS SOME STRUCTURE IN THE MIDDLE PALATE WITH GOOD ACIDITY ON THE FINISH.  THIS WINE IS CELLAR WORTHY.  IN TIME IT WILL DEVELOP HONEYED, TOASTY AND NUTTY CHARACTERS WHILE RETAINING ITS CITRUS CORE.  DRINK IT YOUNG OR DRINK IT IN 5-10 YEARS.
