This vibrant and enticing expression of mountain-grown Chenin Blanc offers a beautiful nose of bright tropical fruit, Meyer lemon, honeydew melon and green apple. On the palate, flavors of orange, pineapple and lychee are supported by fresh, lively acidity that adds a lovely mouthwatering quality to this alluring wine.
Our Chenin Blanc has a long and storied history on Pritchard Hill®. The original vines were already producing when Donn and Molly purchased the property in the late 1960s. Following a replanting in 2004, we reintroduced our Chenin Blanc as a “Signature” designation – with a twist. While our Signature Cabernet and Chardonnay bear Donn Chappellet’s name, Molly Chappellet’s signature graces our Chenin Blanc label. To add depth and complexity, the 2015 Chenin Blanc was fermented in a combination of neutral French oak barrels, stainless steel barrels and tanks.
