Ehrhardt Estates Winery Clarksburg Chenin Blanc 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Production Details Our vines are grown in the alluvial soils of the Sacramento Delta, giving this wine tremendous body and complex flavors. Harvested at night when cold and immediately delivered to the winery for pressing. Chilled overnight then cold fermented for three weeks. Tasting Notes Light and soft in the mouth with crisp acid balance. Aroma of pear and melon with hints of honey. A distinctive wine that reflects the quality of Clarksburg appellation and the care of the fourth generation of the Herzog family's farming ability. Aging The wonderful honey flavors continue to develop with a patine of ripe pear. As such, if one prefers the fresh, youthful aromas the wine should be enjoyed within 24 months of the vintage; if one enjoys the patina that develops with age then the wine will age gracefully for 3-5 years. Pairing Chilled, this wine goes well with fruit and cheese as an aperitif. A versatile wine to enjoy with any chicken, fish or oriental cuisine. When the wine is warm, it has a full flavor that compliments lamb, game and red meats. Honors And Awards 98 Points, Double Gold, Best of Class in Region, Best of Region 2004 California State Fair Wine Competition Gold 2005 San Francisco International Wine Competition
