2018 Hahn Hill Vineyard Chenin Blanc
Our Chenin Blanc is vividly bright with flavors of pear, quince, and grapefruit essence. It has a drier style, which closely resembles the Loire Valley style rather than a CA Chenin. Exceptional single vineyard selections from our most prized vineyards in the Columbia and Yakima Valleys, WA. Fermented with native yeasts and expertly crafted to portray a true sense of place.
Wind-blown loess on basalt bedrock.
The vines from Hahn Hill Vineyard were planted in 1968 on a south-facing slope and they are some of the oldest vines in the Yakima Valley. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks – preserving a crisp character that enhances rather than dominates vibrant cuisine. We use no oak, no malolactic fermentation or commercial yeast in our Chenin Blanc.
Key lime and melon.
Ideal with shellfish, grilled fish, soft cheeses, and Mediterranean food.
