Winemaker Notes :

This wine has alluring weight and richness, a silky texture and subtle aromas of Chamomile, green apple, quince, lemon verbena and white flowers. The palate offers a medley of herbal and tea notes, as well as hints of wet riverstone minerality that carries through to a lingering almost salty finish.

After years of searching for just the right Chenin Blanc to work with, I found what I was looking for in the 37-year-old vines of Saini Farms in Dry Creek Valley. Planted in Yolo sandy loam soils on an old river bottom site, these dry-farmed vines produce grapes that capture the fresh, enticing purity that can be achieved when Chenin Blanc is grown with care and respect.
