Winemaker’s note: “It rained a lot in the fall of 2019. Like a lot a lot. You had a choice to pick early or wait it out. I chose the former for the Chenin Blanc from Omero Vineyard. Partly to help promote the searing acidity and flintiness I’ve come to love from the great producers in the Saumur, but also just for sheer protection of the fruit. This was a tricky site, and one with a lot of bravery and foresight, as many, many experimental varietals were planted at Omero. In the months following harvest, the vineyard changed hands and was grafted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for a larger-scale project. Especially because of this, I’m so glad that I was able to produce this wine, in one of the last vintages that I (mostly) was working completely alone and the last ever vintage of Chenin Blanc to be produced from these vines. This one’s a stunner.”
