Region: Sacramento Valley
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Haarmeyer Wine Cellars is a father and son winemaking duo based in Sacramento, specializing in historically grown varieties and newer plantings, notably Chenin Blanc from the marine-influenced river delta. This wine comes from organically-farmed younger vines planted to the sand and clay soils of the Sutter Ranch Vineyard, located deep in the Clarksburg AVA where the marine breezes preserve high natural acidity for a very refreshing dry wine that retains all of the varietal characteristics of Chenin Blanc. This Chenin was foot-tread, fermented spontaneously with partial malolactic. No added sulfur.
Bright and fresh with lemony citrus, green herb and chalky mineral aromas and flavors, and creamy notes on the palate.
