Harvested at 21.0 brix, the wine was whole-cluster pressed into 100% neutral oak barrels and fermented using native yeasts. We stirred each barrel daily until the wine was dry. After eight months on the lees, we bottled the wine unfiltered. The end result is a focused, medium-bodied white exhibiting texture, snappy fruit and intense acidity. We consider the dry Chenin Blancs of the Loire Valley to be some of the most compelling white wines in all of France. The varietal offers so much; mineral driven aromatics, layers of texture and mouthwatering acidity. Chenin Blanc is the perfect vehicle for us to show-off one of Sonoma Valley’s cooler microclimates. Each bottle is hand-numbered. Aromas of pine, lemon oil, chipped stone. Flavors of candied lemon, beeswax, flint.
