Enfield Skin Contact Chenin Blanc Santa Ynez 2018


The wine pours a faint copper-orange color from the extended skin fermentation.  A perfect wine for getting into the trend of skin contact whites or orange wines.  The sandy, rocky soils are rich in fossils and the wine transmits this perfectly.  Light notes of petrol, orange pith, wet concrete, kumquat, and a saltiness to minerality.  A great balance of skins give the wine a creamy texture while also delivery tannins and grip for a lengthy finish.
