"Grapes for the Chenin Blanc are sourced from the Clarksburg appellation, referred to as the 'Gem of the Delta.' It is an appellation that is showing a great affinity for Chenin Blanc. The climate has a moderately long growing season and benefits from the maritime influence of the Sacramento River which gives the region a somewhat familiar Mediterranean climate, with warm days and cool nights. Natural exposure to wind is provided by the San Pablo Bay in the south and the Sacramento River Delta in the north. Bringing breezes that help produce grapes with natural acidity."

"The color is a light white with vibrant golden hues. Broad and full-figured but with refreshing acidity. Initial aromatics are lifted by the light dose of Viognier - zesty lemon, juicy tropical fruits, and white flowers merge on the palate with a tangy texture and mouthwatering fruit. Our 2019 vintage is a delicious wine to drink now or could be cellared for the next 1-3 years." More at
