2017 Aperture Cellars Barrel-Fermented Chenin Blanc

Estate: Aperture Cellars

Region: Clarksburg, North Coast, California, United States of America


Tasting Note:May 25, 2018

First of the wines we tried at Aperture Cellars with Lauren. Clear and pale lemon yellow with a hint of green. Clean and fresh nose with light stone fruits and white flowers. Crisp acidity (7/10) with a light plus body. Layered palate with green apples, underripe melon and yellow stone fruits. Long finish and great value.

First stop on our very first trip to Sonoma, and we were not dissappointed. The wines made by Jesse Katz have a ton of finesse, power and character. Definitely a winery for any wine lover or collector to have on their radar. Stay tuned for some exciting new wines coming out in the 2017 vintage, possibly an old vine Zinfandel. Also a must visit for art and photography lovers.
