2019 Chenin Blanc

2019 Chenin Blanc
Curtis Vineyard

Chenin Blanc, also known as Pineau de la Loire in France, is a grape common in the Loire Valley where it is used in the Loire Sparkling Wines because of its high acidity.

In California, it is widely grown and often used in combination with other grapes for ordinary table wine. When carefully cultivated, as in the Curtis Vineyard, it can produce a stand-alone aromatic wine of interesting complexity.

Bruce McGuire sources his grapes for the Chenin Blanc from Curtis Vineyard- known for loam rich soil, warm afternoons, and cool evenings that produce distinctive Rhone varietals. Self-rooted vines grown at high elevation help create the unique characteristics of this wine.
