Au Revoir 2020 Chenin Blanc, Palisades Vineyard

With this release of Au Revoir 2020 Chenin Blanc, we celebrate the renewal of our vineyards and herald the potential of our young vines to produce fine wines in the years to come. Grafted in 2018 onto St. George rootstock, we farm our Chenin in the traditional, head-trained style of historic Napa Valley, where Chenin was once widely planted but where now less than 20 acres of Chenin vines remain.

Beautifully aromatic with notes of pear, apple blossom, lime and honeysuckle that transcend into complex layers of flint and hay, this classic Chenin is long and flavorful on the palate with mouthwatering notes of ripe melon, citrus rind and lemon meringue. This wine will delight casual wine drinkers and intrigue the most knowledgeable wine enthusiast.

Recommended pairings: halibut poached in olive oil, lemon and herbes de Provence, or a lean pork loin braised in orange juice with fennel, apricots, crushed bay leaves and thyme.
