The Chenin Blanc was harvested in the early morning and promptly delivered to the winery. The
fruit was gently whole-cluster pressed to minimize phenolics and solids. The settled juice was
fermented slowly with a classic Vouvray yeast at cold temperatures to yield rich and fruity flavors.
After three months the fermentation was stopped by cold suppression and the wine was filtered.
This fresh, tart and delightfully fruity Chenin Blanc shows Asian pear, perfumed honeysuckle and orange blossom aromas with flavors of apple, apricot, and grapefruit on a crisp mineral, lightly sweet finish.
"You’ll find beautiful, lush, complex, fruit-driven aromas here, as with all the L’Ecole white wines. This captures the complexity of the grape – rarely seen in domestic Chenin Blanc – ripe apples, spice, hints of hone and caramel, and a lovely, persistent floral overtone. In short, this is the Chenin Blanc that should be made, that can be made, and that is rarely made in this state. – Best Buy."
