Winemaker Seth Cripe Notes
Our 2018 Chenin Blanc comes from 45-year old vines on land planted in 1974 just north of the town of St. Helena in Napa Volley. The soil is bale cloy on a slight east slope drainage towards the Napa River. The grapes are very small and concentrated on loose clusters formed with a California sprawl canopy to allow for maximum airflow and even ripeness of the individual berries. We picked at 22.5 to 23 Brix, 3.3ph on September 19, to preserve natural acidity and vibrancy. The grapes are then whole cluster pressed and the juice allowed a native cool fermentation to dryness in neutral to 4-year old barrels maintaining temperature throughout al under 72 degrees. This wine was racked once at bottling and had minimal S02 additions of under 35ppm to ...more... tal from harvest to bottling. The resulting wine is fresh, bright and crisp with a hint of mature oak tannin on the palate and aromas of Jasmine, Pear and Apples. 130 cases produced.
