Winemaker Megan McGrath Gates Notes
These Chenin Blanc grapes were grown in our Los Alamos Vineyard. Chenin Blanc is traditionally made in an off-dry style in some parts of the world. At Lucas and Lewellen Vineyards a slight touch of residual sugar is left behind in this wine to accentuate the rare tropical fruit flavors of lychee, mangosteen and pineapple. The wine is exotic when young and will develop familiar aromas of honey and caramel as well as pear with age. Upon entry the wine is round and creamy but it has a fine edge on the mid-palate and finish.
