2018 Chenin Blanc

2018 Chenin Blanc
2018 Chenin Blanc

This is our very first vintage of Chenin Blanc. It is made in a classic Chinon style – very crisp and dry with loads of green apple fruit flavors. Chenin is a lesser known variety in the U.S., but its fans are passionate about it, to say the least. It is famous in its native France where it is grown predominantly in the Loire valley. It has higher acidity than most varieties, which gives it the versatility to be made into sparkling and dessert styles, as well as a crisp, food-friendly dry table wine. There aren’t a lot of vineyards growing Chenin Blanc in Washington, but we found one in the Yakima Valley on the slopes of the Rattlesnake Hills. Few of our new releases have been as much anticipated as this one. Of course, this being our first vintage of Chenin, we couldn’t know how it was going to turn out for many weeks after harvest. And since the deciding the harvest date is the most important decision of the year, winemaking-wise, we were on tenterhooks as we waited to taste the finished wine, and our excitement kept building as the end of fermentation drew closer. We now excited to share the results with you and to hear what you think!
