s estate vineyards at the foot of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch.
The vineyards are farmed organically, and everything is done by hand. Grapes for the FMC are hand selected from a single block of low yielding Chenin bush vines planted in 1974. Each vine is pruned to 5 or 6 shoots, with 1 bunch per shoot. They are planted in Clovelly — a deep yellow sandy soil — on south-southwest-facing slopes.

Ripe, high quality fruit is the key to making this "pink lady" the most alluring Cabernet Franc-based bubbly we have ever had. All the juice was fermented in 400L 8 year-old barrels. Read More...
Bottling took place in February 2013 and disgorgement in July 2013. Shimmering dark with a very fine perlage its aromas present a veritable basket of raspberries, strawberries, and red currant aromas joined by top notes of roses and vanilla. The pristine palate mirrors the red fruit bouquet but is bolstered by undertones of citrus and limestone. A primo patio quaffer if there ever was one.

Bertrand Jousset is a passionate, larger than life (he looks to be about six foot six) Loire Valley vigneron. Bertrand and his wife Lise are part of a vanguard of young wine producers that are revitalizing the Mount Louis wine scene. Located in Touraine on the left bank of the Loire River opposite from Vouvray, Mount Louis features old vines and relatively inexpensive land making it something of a Mecca for a new generation of winery startups. Loire Valley natives, the Joussets had always dreamed of working with Chenin Blanc. That dream seemed far off until suddenly in 2003 they happened upon a small, run-down estate for rent that offered great potential. The property featured an historic ridge top chateau with three levels to facilitate gravity flow winemaking. More importantly, the property possessed 26 acres of old vines averaging 60 years of age. After nearly a decade of moonlighting and scrimping, the couple was able to assume ownership of the estate. Their vineyards are divided into 25 garden-sized parcels planted primarily to Chenin Blanc rounded out with small holdings of Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Grolleau, and Chardonnay. Bertrand mainly overseas the grape farming which is strictly organic. He also follows an aggressive pruning schedule to limit yields and takes extra time and care to field sort his fruit at harvest to ensure that only the healthiest grapes make it to the crusher. The winery is Lise’s relm where she follows a non-intervention regime that includes fermentation with native yeasts, minimal application of SO2, and clarification without filtration.

Fashioned from 100% Chenin Blanc grapes planted primarily on schist soil from a variety of plots including Savennieres, Angers and Samur from vines ranging from 20-70 years old. Read More...
The fruit aromas flavors of this still wine are more muted than the above bubblies (as one would expect) but over time this white opens nicely to reveal hints of nectarine, white peach and pippin apples on the nose. In the mouth this wine is taught, yet well textured with an old-vine density with leads to a long inter play of juicy orchard fruits and deep seated mineral flavors on the back palate. A serious, yet versatile wine for summer's lighter fare.

PINE RIDGE 13 CHENIN/VIOGNIER
$10.95
Quantity

Pine Ridge has one of the most solid portfolios in California crafting flavorful Cabernets, Merlots, and Chardonnays; but what often strikes us most is their Chenin Blanc - Viognier blend! Read More...
This wine has been one of our perennial favorites for years. It is a rather unconventional blend, but once you taste the flavors and the refreshing qualities of the wine, we know you’ll be hooked just as we have been!

Pine Ridge’s winemaker Michael Beaulac likes the Chenin Blanc (79% of the blend) harvested early to maintain its bright acidity, while Viognier (21% of the blend) brings its signature fragrant bouquet. The 2013 bottling of this distinctive blend opens with a dazzling spectrum of fruit and floral aromas, from crisp white peach, honeyed pear and sweet mango, to touches of fresh jasmine blossom and white chai tea. Filled with bright and juicy fruits, the palate flaunts flavors of succulent white nectarine, candied pineapple, green fig and subtle grapefruit. The crisp and slightly off-dry flavor profile lasts well through the clean and refreshing finish.

When you think of Napa Valley producers, your mind might logically think of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay… and with good reason. But in December, The Terraces Winery (Read More...
located in the Rutherford district of Napa Valley) crafted a Riesling so extraordinary that it would be wrong not to include it in our list of top white wines of the year. Now they have come out with a Chenin Blanc that tastes unlike anything we’ve had out of California in several years; so we have to ask ourselves... how do they do it?!?!? Winemaker Timm Crull loves to drink clean, vibrant white wines from France. So he doesn’t just make a wine because the grapes are available; he makes delicious wine because QUALITY grapes are available, and he knows what to do with them! Sourced from the cool region of Clarksburg (east of Napa), the wine does not go through secondary fermentation in order to retain fresh acidity and sees only 5 months in neutral barrels to promote texture. Clear straw/gold in color, this is highly aromatic with pear, citrus rind, apple and light spice notes, all of which follow through to the palate. Bright, easy-drinking, and refreshing, this is our new “go-to” white on those warm spring and summer days!
