screw cap wine

Winemaker's Notes:

Aged without oak and does not go through malolactic fermentation, showcasing the tropical fruit flavors of the grape. The bright acidity from the cool growing region of Monterey is prevalent throughout the palate. On the nose I get pineapple, bananas, lemons and a hint of coconut. The palate is consistent with the nose, except for the addition of a little lime rind on the finish.

Pair with brie cheese, shrimp cocktail and caesar salad.

About Clos LaChance:

Clos LaChance is a small, family-owned winery, located in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains. We produce limited quantities of hand-made wines from local vineyards and other premium appellations throughout Northern California. The name Clos LaChance is derived from the French word "clos" for the fenced area around a vineyard (in this case the owners' home vineyard), and from co-owner Brenda Murphy's maiden name, LaChance.

The Clos LaChance trademark - a hummingbird among the grapevines - is the primary feature on our label. The hummingbird was chosen not only for its grace and style, but also for its strength. The hummingbird is a welcome addition into vineyards for its "energetic" efforts in keeping other birds away.
