Clone 220 Chenin Blanc

From its Loire Valley origins in France to the Okanagan Valley, this grape has flourished on our estate vineyard for more than 20 years. The 2018 vintage marks our first time fermenting and aging a limited amount of our Chenin Blanc in a concrete egg for added complexity and depth.

Tasting & Pairing

Bright and fresh with aromas of honeysuckle, wildflower, apricot and citrus. A medium bodied wine with some weight, reminiscent of starfruit, lemon and a hint of crème brulée on the finish. Lingers on the palate long after the glass is empty.

Bright and fresh with a rounded mouthfeel, this is a versatile food wine. Try it with oysters and seafoods, creamy risotto, harvest vegetables or garden salads and Southeast Asian flavour combinations.

Winemaking

Fermented 90% in 1,700L concrete egg (harvested October 6, 2018 from our Osoyoos vineyard) and 10% in stainless steel tank (harvested October 9, 2018 from our Mannhardt vineyard). Aged 9 months in concrete egg.
