White Blend, Broc Cellars 'Love White' Can
90% Chenin Blanc/10% Chardonnay
The grapes were direct pressed, fermented and aged in a mix of neutral French oak, Stockinger Austrian oak puncheons and sandstone jars. The wine was aged for 11 months with no filtration. 100% malolactic fermentation naturally occurred.
The Chenin Blanc comes from Solano County’s Green Valley. The area is a small pocket of land, about 3 miles long and a mile wide – tucked between the southeastern edge of Suisun Valley. These are newly grafted vines onto what was originally Pinot Gris. The Chenin cuttings come from vines planted in 1979 from Story Vineyard in Amador County. The Chardonnay comes from Michael Mara vineyard, just west of the town of Sonoma. The vines grow in a field of rocky soil.
