About The Wine
Our Tower 15, 2020 Chenin Blanc is versatile in style and highlighted by bright acidity, proving to be a wine for every occasion. The small quantity of grapes are sustainably farmed and sourced from Jurassic Park Vineyard, producing a textured wine with abundant minerality and exotic fruit. The grapes for this wine were hand picked and gently pressed into a small stainless steel tank. After 2 day of settling, the juice was racked off its lees into a second tank and then barreled into 100% stainless steel barrels. Once fermantation began, the barrels were stirred daily with a concerted effort to keep the temperature below 68°F. When fermentation completed, the drums were self-topped via gravity. This wine continued to age in stainless steel barrels for 120 days.
The Santa Ynez Valley is a long, east-west corridor, with very cool temperatures on the coast that become progressively warmer inland. Consequently, several varietals do well, from Pinot Noir in the west to Cabernet, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc in the east. Rhone varietals such as Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Roussanne, and Viognier also thrive in the Santa Ynez.
It shows nuanced layers of citrus peel, peach, and wet stone that remain light-bodied with crisp ripe acidity and spice hinting towards applesauce flavors.
