BACKGROUND

Back in the early to mid 1980’s when we first started, Chenin Blanc was our second production item behind only Johannisberg Riesling – that was back in the days when you could call the wine Johannisberg Riesling. Chenin Blanc vines were prolific growers and produced large amount of amazing fruit that rivaled the French Vouvrey. Unfortunately, the grape grew out-of-favor and nearly all vines were replanted with more popular varieties. Fortunately for us, one grower has left his vineyard intact and we’ve been able to use his Chenin Blanc grapes continually for all these years. Most of the time though, the Chenin Blanc has been blended away, but Natalie convinced me to bottle a small amount two years ago and then again this year. Enjoy this wine as only 56 cases were bottled and will surely be gone by the end of summer.

TASTING NOTES

This special edition wine was made in honor of our 1982 Chenin Blanc, which put Latah Creek on the map by being honored with a Best of Show Award at our first competition ever entered. It opens up with aromas of sweet grass and ruby red grapefruit. Once in the mouth, this Chenin Blanc explodes of passion fruit and lime, while a bright, crisp finish of honeysuckle and key lime linger long after the wine is swallowed.
