ALHEIT VINEYARDS FIRE BY NIGHT CHENIN BLANC 2017
The 2017 Fire By Night Chenin Blanc begins with a subtle yet structured nose of faint peanut shells, nutty lemon and citrus blossoms. The wine has a textural weight across the mid-palate, revealing some waxiness and a fresh and zippy acid backbone. The finish has some grippy phenolics with a slight bitterness. The wine is medium-bodied and did not see any new oak. Only 280 cases were produced. ROBERT PARKER. 90/100.
