2016 Sparkling Chenin Blanc Jurassic Park

93 Points: "The 2016 Sparkling Zero Chenin Blanc Jurassic Park is a rich, vinous wine that shows the more savory side of Chenin to great effect. Pear, dried almond, sage and dried flowers all open with some time in the glass. Intense fruit and the no dosage style make for a potent sparkling wine that will be at its best at the dinner table. This is serious juice." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Description

We started this project in 2013, making just 69 odd cases with the help of Michael Cruse in Petaluma. Since then we have been refining our techniques in our own cellars. This bottling, made 100% at our Goleta winery in the true Methode Champenoise, is bone dry, with zero dosage. You’ll find it clean and crisp, though pleasingly complex, with lovely signature Jurassic Park flavors of apricot and quince throughout.
