Broc Cellars Frei Vineyards Chenin Blanc 2016
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.
