Chenin Blanc is really the archetype of white wine.  Medium in body, this wine has really got it all- dried flowers, gruava, lemongrass, green strawberry, and oyster shell on the nose. The palate is opal apple, toast with quince paste, white tea and miso. This wine is a delight and reminds me of the golden hour, when everyones got the gloam on the them. 

This wine was partially foot tread and macerated on the skins for six hours. It was then whole cluster pressed and enjoyed native fermentation in neutral French oak barrels. It was aged five months on lees. Battonage was performed on a regular basis until the desired mouthfeel was achieved. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered, so vegan. 

100 cases produced. 

2021 Little x Little Chenin Blanc


We had a friend who was getting fruit at Mangels. We got hooked up with Gary through this friend. He’s so funny. He’s such a salt of the earth guy. It was just networking and luck. A lot of luck. We’ve had a lot of luck so far.

The Chenin vines are on the older side and they’re not trained to Vertical Shoot Positioning so they’ve got a bit of a canopy overhang. It protects them from the heat that they get over there in Suisun Valley. Every once in a while we’ve seen a little bit of Botrytis there. That’s been cool. It’s really not enough to make much of a difference, but I like to think it makes a difference.”



Well hello there.
