Varietal: 100% Chenin Blanc
Vineyard: Wilson Vineyard - Woods Ranch in Clarksburg, CA. The Wilson family has been farming land in Clarksburg for four generations. Deep alluvial mix of clay and some sand, washed down the river and into the Delta. Planted in 1998 and farmed organically. Warm days followed by cool nights, sitting right alongside the Delta waterway.
Vinification: Prior to pressing the grapes were gently foot tread. After pressing, they were allowed time to settle in the tank overnight before racking to neutral french oak to ferment in barrel. 8 months in barrel before bottling. Spontaneously fermented, unfined, unfiltered.
The Wine: Fun fact, in 2021 Chenin Blanc was the first all grape wine that I made following my first vintage of solely apple, pear and grape co-ferments.It remains very special to me in the lineup with notes of pear, green apple, brioche with a kiss of salty/savory.
