Leo Steen Chenin Blanc Mendocino 2020

$19.99
Fruit is grown on the Sainis farm, a multigenerational winegrowing family that have farmed grapes in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley for almost a century. Vines were planted in 1981, in an old, dry riverbed filled with sandy loam soils, in a 2-acre block of dry-farmed Chenin Blanc grown on St. George rootstock. Winemaker Leo Hansen fell in love with Saini Vineyard�s gnarled Chenin Blanc vines the second I saw them. With so few great Chenin Blanc sites remaining in California, these vines had thrived for over 30 years�and they are very special. Grapes are protected from the sun by grooming a natural canopy in the vines, and picked a bit earlier to preserve the natural acidity.
