Daniel Gehrs Chenin Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a lovely aroma of greengage plums, springtime wild flowers and clover honey together with a refreshing mineral note. It is clean and fruity on the palate with ripe Bartlett pear and crenshaw melon flavors and a zesty finish. This vintage has a naturally high level of malic acid (the same acid found in green apples) which makes it somewhat leaner and tighter than its sister, 2010 vintage at the time of this writing. Therefore... this Chenin Blanc is capable of bottle aging – for 5-7 years or more! Great with mildly seasoned chicken dishes, spicy Asian foods and mildly flavored, flaky white fish. Oysters anyone?

Built in 1904, Heather Cottage features a true gift shop with French Country and English cottage-themed items for the home. You will also find numerous wine-related gifts in the tasting room alongside the latest releases. Originally built as a doctor's office and later a residence through much of the 1900's, for the last decade, Heather Cottage has made a name for itself as a gift boutique. Now, in addition to the many unique and wonderful gift items, the Heather Cottage is home to Daniel Gehrs Wines. Read less
