2017 Chenin Blanc
Jurassic Park Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara, CA
Habit Wine Company
What we love
Founded ten years ago by Jeff Fischer, Habit wines are produced in the heart of Santa Barbara County. The 2017 Chenin Blanc from Jurassic Park Vineyard is wonderfully nuanced and very food friendly. Flavors of lemon and orchard fruit are layered with notes of green papaya, nutmeg and minerality. This is a flat-out gorgeous wine from Habit that is incredibly pleasing to drink.
About this Wine
Farmed using sustainable and organic methods, grapes for the 2017 ‘Jurassic Park’ Chenin comes from a 35-year-old vineyard and was fermented and aged on its lees in a combination of French oak and steel. We find a purity in Habit's wines that places them among the elite in Santa Barbara, especially considering their very budget-friendly prices. Enjoy!
