Kirchhoff Vineyard, Clarksburg
100% Chenin Blanc, 40-day Skin Contact
Sourced from a sustainable vineyard in Clarksburg (California’s most famed region for this grape variety) which borders the beautiful Sacramento River, a region reminiscent of the Loire Valley…minus the castles. This is the wine that launched Kleinlerer Wines.
The wine is refreshing, yet shows off some weight from the skin contact, with hints of golden apple, almond, pear and marzipan. What do you pair with it? Food. You want specifics? Salads, sushi, fish, goat cheese, chicken, anything with pesto. Be creative and decide for yourself!
And yes, the wine is supposed to be a bit cloudy. It should be served chilled…but leave it out of the refrigerator for 20 minutes before opening. You’ll be rewarded for your patience.
Everyone’s talking about orange and skin contact wines these days. You won’t stop talking about it either once you drink this wine.
