WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Direct pressed, fermented and aged in a combination of new and one-year-old Stockinger puncheons from Austria. The wine was aged for 10 months with no filtration. 100% malolactic fermentation.
VITICULTURAL AREA: Frei Vineyard is located in Solano County’s Green Valley. The area is a small pocket of land, about 3 miles long and a mile wide – tucked between the southeastern edge of Suisun Valley. These are newly grafted vines onto what was originally Pinot Gris. The Chenin cuttings come from vines planted in 1979 from Story Vineyard in Amador County. This is our first vintage, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
Like springtime in a bottle, our Chenin Blanc is sure to invigorate your senses. Beautiful aromas of citrus zest, orange blossom, white peach, honeydew, and wet limestone invite your nose to the glass. Fresh, fruity, and bright flavors that parallel the aromas delight your taste buds. This is a perfect wine for any occasion from the picnic table to the dinner table. Enjoy on its own, or with foods such as roasted turkey, baked macaroni & cheese, or fresh sea food.
