Little Frances - Chenin Blanc 2019
Region: Clarksburg / Sacramento
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Richly flavoured and juicy yet with a nice acid backbone. Notes of stone fruit and nuts.
Clarksburg is a rich farmland surrounded by the Sacramento River delta. Days are warm, but the nights are cooled by heavy fog rolling in from nearby San Francisco Bay. Similar to Australia's Riverland, recent history has painted Clarksburg as focussing more on quantity than quality. However, this is quickly changing with an energised generation of farmers reigniting interest in the Californian table wines grown here for generations. This vineyard, just ten minutes south of Sacramento, is a testament to the bright future and renewed respect for the Clarksburg viticultural area.
