RATINGS

94Wine Enthusiast

...clean, direct and fascinating aromas of chalk, nectarine, white blossom and a hint of toast. Tense on the palate, it delivers focused, restrained and pure flavors of honeysuckle and Asian pear.

90Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of citrus, lemon, and crushed stone-like nuances...medium-bodied, bright, nicely balanced white with clean, juicy acidity and a dry, crisp finish.

REGION

United States, California, Central Coast, Edna Valley

Edna Valley AVA is within San Luis Obispo County, and within the large Central Coast AVA. Edna Valley became an AVA in 1982 and it includes 22,400 acres of extremely fertile land blessed with a long growing season. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the principal grapes, though Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Albarino, Grenache, Viognier, Merlot and Petite Sirah also are grown. Spanish missionaries were growing grape vines in the Edna Valley in the 18th century, but the valley’s modern wine industry took off in the 1970s. Today there are more than 50 Edna Valley wineries.

TYPE

White Wine, Chenin Blanc

This light-bodied white wine grape has zest and versatility depending on its style. It is grown extensively in South Africa, where wineries produce dry wines. Traditional French Chenin Blancs are sweet. It is closest to Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc.
