Vinum Cellars Chenin Blanc Clarksburg Cnw Chard-No-Way 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Pale fruity green-yellow lime zest with orange blossom scent. The palate starts with good acidity of ruby grapefruit and lemon curd flavors. Then the explosion of spice begins with clove, cinnamon and star anise. The wine finishes with honey comb, lime flesh and Rainier cherries. While great on its own, this wine lends itself to dishes withgoat cheese such as a beet salad with champagne vinaigrette, or a grilled onion goat cheese tart with sundried tomato paste on the crust. This is our favorite summertime refresher. Fill an ice tray of the wine and freeze; then pour the CNW right over this ice wine... when it dissolves; no dilution!

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

Interesting wine but not my thing ... good acidity, pine, citrus and lime flavors. Short finish.
