Like Trousseau Gris, Chenin is a white grape that was once widely planted in CA. From over 2000 acres of Chenin planted in Napa in the 1980's, there are now only 18 acres. Finding it is difficult but rewarding. This is our third bottling of Chenin Blanc from a small vineyard in St. Helena. It was picked in early September 2016, and was fermented and aged sur lie in used French Oak barrels for a total of 11 months.
The 2016 displays a brilliant balance between richness and elegance. Notes of cream and lemon rind are mixed with delicate floral tones. The 2016 Chenin is succulent and calm; easy to drink, easy to savor.
