Old Bushvine Chenin Blanc | Wightman & Sons

Andrew Wightman and his son Brandon’s winemaking philosophy is to keep it simple concentrating on expressing the terroir of their decomposed granite soils. Combined with 65-year-old bush vines – Chenin Blanc interplanted with a little Riesling – and you get a beautifully aromatic wine with quince, white peach, dried herbs, a lovely freshness and depth, and a hint of mineral reduction on the nose.
