Description
 
The Chenin Abides...on the skins.

Only 40 cases of this limited release skin contact (orange wine) Chenin Blanc were produced . "Rollin' on Skinz" Chenin Blanc features aromas and flavors of Honeydew Melon, cantaloupe, apricot, medium plus weight, integrated tannin and a bright, zippy finish. Drink on its own or pair with chicken, pork, charcuterie, and creamy/fatty cheeses. Whatever you do, make sure you grab a bottle of this unique white wine made with techniques usually reserved for red wine making, before it's gone!

Clarksburg AVA
The Clarksburg viticultural area lies just south of Sacramento alongside the Sacramento river which acts as a night time temperature regulator in this hot daytime region. The sandy, alluvial soils of the region and cooling river influence have many likening Clarksburg to the Loire region of France, making it a perfect area to grow Chenin Blanc in California.

WINEMAKING
We destemmed the Chenin Blanc, into smaller macrobin fermenters where it fermented spontaneously on the skins for 14 days before we pressed off the juice into old French Oak barrels where it aged for 9 months before we bottled without fining for filtering. A truly unique white wine made like a red wine.
