Fog Monster Chenin Blanc 2013
Fog Monster Wines is a passion project of Andrea Mullineux, a fantastic winemaker known for her wonderful wines in the Swartland region of South Africa. The Fog Monster is an exploration of Andrea’s home state; California. These super small production wines consist each vintage of two wines; a ‘heritage’ red blend from the Bedrock Vineyard every vintage and then a secondary wine which changes each year where Andrea can explore something new. Andrea, originally from California, and her husband Chris have been sourcing fruit from unique vineyards in various California winegrowing areas in order to explore the possibilities of the land and different winemaking styles. These vineyards are exposed to the interesting climatic conditions, particularly the fog rolling in from the Pacific Ocean. The wines are esoteric in nature, beautifully balanced, and a true reflection of the climatic influence in this region.
