2018 LOLA Artisanal Series St. Helena Chenin Blanc
2018 LOLA Artisanal Series St. Helena Chenin Blanc

Our Chenin Blanc comes from 45 year old vines on land planted in 1974 just north of the town of St. Helena in Napa Valley next to Revana and Grace Family Vineyards. The soil is bale clay on a slight east slope drainage toward the Napa River. The grapes are very small and concentrated on loose clusters formed with a California sprawl canopy to allow for maximum airflow and even ripeness of the individual berries. We picked at 22.5 to 23 Brix, 3.3ph on September 19, to preserve natural acidity and vibrancy. The grapes are then whole cluster pressed and the juice allowed a native cool fermentation to dryness in neutral to 4 year old barrels maintaining temperature throughout at under 72 degrees. This wine is racked once at bottling and has minimal S02 additions of under 35ppm total from harvest to bottling, when it is bottled unfixed and unfiltered. The resulting wine is fresh, bright and crisp with a hint of mature oak tannin on the palette and aromas of Jasmine, Pear and Apples. 130 cases produced. Retail Price: $38

This wine is a part of our raw artisanal series collection of wines that are only available to order direct from the LOLA property in Calistoga.
