2018 Field Recordings Chenin Blanc, USA, California, Central Coast
This is an old vine Chenin Blanc from vineyards in Santa Ynez and Paso Robles. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has a bunch of granny smith apples with a touch of chamomile tea. Medium bodied. On the palate this has a nice minerality. There is some green apples. Dry. Clean. This drinks easy. Nice finish. Although Chenin ages well, and these are old vines, it should probably be consumed over the next five years. It might be interesting to lay one down for ten or more though. This will go well with seafood. Oysters are a good call.
