Winemaker Notes: 

"Our 2021 Chenin Blanc is graceful and complex. Layered aromas of juicy pear, chamomile, honeydew, and wet limestone invite your nose to the glass. Soft and bright in the mouth, flavors of Meyer lemon, Asian pear, and cucumber linger with a distinct mineral finish. This is a perfect wine for any occasion, whether sitting on a picnic blanket or at the dinner table. Enjoy on its own or pair with seared scallops, stuffed mushrooms, cacio e pepe, or roast turkey." 

History: 

"Chenin Blanc is one of the most versatile grapes grown around the world. Chenin originally earned its fame in France’s Loire Valley, where it was crafted into sweet wine, dry wine, and even sparkling wine. Inspired by these examples, a number of American wineries are making excellent wines from the noble grape. Since our first vintage in 1984, Husch has adopted an “off-dry” style that leaves just a touch of residual sugar in the wine to accentuate the vibrant flavors of the grape and to balance the refreshing acidity." 

Winemaking: 

"Drought and heat made for a stressful growing season and an early harvest. The crop was small but to our delight the fruit was vibrant and aromatic at harvest. We hand-picked, gently pressed, and fermented these grapes at a cool temperature in stainless steel tanks to retain fresh aromas. The lots were inoculated with several of our favorite yeast strains to add complexity. To preserve freshness, we bottled the wine just months after harvest." 

Alcohol: 13.3% 

Sustainably grown.
