Tense, sharp, crystalline CB, carries some nice concentration along with it across the palate.

Incredible balance. Apple and tea leaf on the nose, with pear on the pallet. So balanced, expected way more acid with the tree fruit, but it's just perfect. Delish and will certainly revisit

A very interesting #newworld #cheninblanc Fragrant but light on the nose. More complexity on the palate with notes of ripe yellow fruit and lanolin. Medium acid and short length. #littorai #sonomacoast #ctbucklinwine

Delicious. Steely, minerally, some citrus... very refreshing.

My first time trying littorai’s chenin. Super high acid, linear wine. Also v good at thanksgiving table for its ability to cut through some of the fat and sweet. Would like a little more intensity and complexity

Really nice. I thought this was a Riesling. All the good fruit, lots of acid.
