An old vineyard was spotted by the side of the road late one evening while driving in the wine country of eastern Washington state. When we found out it was Chenin Blanc planted in the 1970's, we decided to clean up two acres of it and call it our own. We still have those same two acres, which are now over forty years old. After picking, we let the grapes soak on their skins for 4 hours prior to gentle pressing, allowing the juice to reveal the delicate character of this Loire varietal. After pressing, the juice undergoes primary fermentation in stainless steel drums and then aged in neutral French oak for 6 months. Tasting notes: Aromas of bees wax, honeysuckle, gold raspberries guava and box elder. A caramel flan richness of texture shocked with vibrant acids and flavors of peach, myrrh and toasted pecans. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature. 300 cases produced
