The dry-farmed vines of the Galleron vineyard sport deep roots, which helps explain the resiliency of these Chenin vines in the hot summer of 2017. Despite the heat, the grapes came in with solid acidity, allowing the wine to maintain balance. I always think about Chenin as a texture-driven white grape, and the 2017 delivers with great richness and a savory character that belies its low harvest brix number. Beeswax, peach and yeasty aromas develop in the glass and will continue to evolve with time in the bottle.
