2019 Chenin Blanc
100% Stainless Steel
76% Chenin Blanc 24% Pinot Grigio
In 2012, the Kautz Family planted their first Chenin Blanc in Lodi. This wine comes primarily from Lodi's Sloughhouse sub-appellation, with a small portion that comes just west of the river in the Delta within the Clarksburg appellation. These well drained soils, each with their own unique qualities are ideal for growing world-class wine grapes.
Our medium-bodied Chenin Blanc has aromas of Bosc pears, honeydew, light guava, and a lovely flint-mineral character. These intense aromas are followed by flavors of pear, white peach, lemon-zest and citrus that finishes crisp, plush and mouth-filling.
Food Pairing Notes
This Chenin Blanc is great as an aperitif or served with goat cheese stuffed chicken, seared tuna steaks, chicken curry, grilled shrimp, soft-shelled crab or a lovely watercress salad.
