Chenin Blanc

With a delicate hint of sweetness, our Chenin Blanc offers an elegant bouquet of pineapple, red grapefruit, citrus blossoms, and star fruit. A fantastic food and wine pairing wine!

Harker Vineyard, Columbia Valley AVA, WA

WINEMAKER NOTES: 2014 broke records for highest temps in eastern Washington, and this record heat brought our grapes to their maximum ripeness while allowing us to harvest two to three weeks earlier than we do most years. Given the hot vintage, we chose a yeast strain developed in South Africa that was bred to produce rich ripe styles of Chenin blanc. Careful to keep oxygen exposure to a minimum, we fermented and aged this wine in stainless steel and, as a final touch, left a hint of residual fermentation CO2 when we bottled for added freshness.
