Normally when we think Cali we think Cabernet and Chardonnay. So its weird to think that one of the first vineyards planted in San Luis Obispo was planted to Chenin Blanc, right? But in 1971, the owners of remote Shell Creek Vineyard knew that Chenin would thrive in the marine fossil-studded soils. 50 years later we're reaping the rewards with this delicious Chenin ripe with notes of candied ginger, apricot, pear, and a crispy minerality.
