2010 Napa Valley Chenin Blanc

by David on May 10, 2011

Napa Valley Chenin BlancThe Chenin Blanc grape is extremely versatile and can be used in making everything from a soft, fruity wine, to dessert, or even sparkling wine. The honeyed fruit and floral character inspired our Winemaker, Geoff Gorsuch, to add it to our portfolio as the perfect picnic wine.

Flavor profile: Fresh, fruity, floral and slightly sweet with honeyed pear, grapefruit, ginger spice and lively green apple.
2010 Vintage: A roller-coaster of a growing season requiring great patience, but yielding low quantities of outstanding fruit quality.

Drink now and through: 2013

Food Suggestions
Enjoy our Chenin Blanc with sweet proteins like shellfish, duck or pork. From Colleen’s recipe collection we recommend Asian-Inspired Tilapia with Spinach.
