2019 Foxen Old Vines Chenin Blanc Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Santa Maria Valley
Foxen winery counts among the best that Santa Barbara wines can offer, creating highly sought-after wines full of quality and value. Three acres of this Chenin Blanc were originally planted in 1966 and thankfully these vines have survived more than 50 years to produce grapes of concentrated flavor and aromas.
Citrus and stone fruits of lemon, peach and apricot dance across a tightrope separating bright and lively from rich and full-bodied. This Chenin Blanc captures the generous fruit profile of just ripe tropical pineapple and a rich texture that California wines offer. It's weighty, creamy presence pairs beautifully with butter-baked scallops.
