Tasting Notes

This complex Chenin Blanc shows expressive citrus and stone fruit aromatics, with blood orange, Meyer lemon and white peach notes, offset by crisp pear and quince aromas. In the mouth, tropical flavors of gooseberry, kiwi, guava, and starfruit permeate through a vibrant finish.

Production Notes

The high elevation Upland Vineyard was machine-harvested in the middle of the night prior to the freeze. All of the other vineyards were hand-picked after the freeze to avoid toasted leaves. The fruit was gently whole-cluster pressed to minimize phenolics and solids. ƒ The settled juice was racked off the solids then fermented slowly in a stainless steel tank over an extended period of time at cool temperatures to yield rich and fruity flavors. ƒ After primary fermentation was complete, the wine was cold stabilized, and filtered.
