Region: Sierra Foothills
Type: White Wine
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Bryn and Jeffrey at Ellsworth Wines were inspired by the Chenin Blancs of the Loire Valley and were happy to find a vineyard in the Sierra Foothills right outside of Placerville to work with for their first vintage. The grapes were harvested early to preserve the natural acidity in the wine, fermented with native yeasts in older French oak barrels and bottled in July, 2020 with minimal sulfur.
Great character and a fresh edge, with notes of golden apple, melon and stone fruit.
