Description
 
A fresh, acid-driven white wine reminiscent of Chardonnay, but without all the buttery notes. Our Chenin Blanc features aromas and flavors of Chamomile, yellow apple, lemon verbena, apricot, and peach wrapped in a soft mouthfeel that seamlessly leads to a bright, zippy finish. Drink on its own or pair with chicken, pork, and cow cheeses such as gruyere, triple cream brie, or cheddar.

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 and pressed off the Chenin Blanc, 100% into a stainless steel tank where underwent a three week fermentation with indigenous yeast. After alcoholic fermentation, we racked the wine off the lees (spent yeast) into stainless steel barrels, where it aged for seven months before bottling without fining or filtration.
