Vinum Cellars Chenin Blanc Clarksburg 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

“The charms of this full-bodied wine are mainly in the substantial and viscous texture, while mild mineral and apricot flavors provide subtle backup. Far from being simply fruity, the style emphaizes the soothing, mouth-coating feel of the wine.”- Wine Enthusiast

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit. We are very experimental with yeast strains and use different cultures for each variety. Our whites are barrel fermented slowly and aged Sur Lies in small French Oak barrels. With our reds, skin contact is optimized by the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs and extended maceration before pressing. Our belief in the use of older French Oak barrels allows the varietal fruit of our wines to be expressed. We are committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach. Read less

Peach and green apple aromas with strong lemon notes. A touch of soft fruit notes of melon and citrus, a hint of spice and tart acidity and some cheese curd and wildflower honey notes adding depth and complexity. Easy drinking and pleasant, crisp and bright. 90 pts

Light melon and tea leaf aromas with a hint of spice and some clay. Lightly emollient in the mouth, softly floral and elegant with hints of white peach, chunky melon, banana and lychee on the finish.
