2017 QTR Chenin Blanc, Napa Valley

2017 QTR Chenin Blanc, Napa Valley

First grafted in 2015, Viticulturist Jim Barbour hand-selected Chenin Blanc budwood from Chappellet and developed a single block on the QTR Estate. The block consists of disrupted claystone bedrock with cobbles and boulders of volcanic matter. This rocky and dry soil provides the perfect foundation for a Chenin Blanc with round structure and incredible complexity.

With less than 14 planted acres recorded in the Napa Valley, this unique white varietal offers a variety of notes both on the nose and the palate. The 2017 Chenin Blanc exhibits beautiful floral aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle, and lemon blossoms. The palate compliments the floral aromas with intricate layers of lime zest, lemon, tropical fruit, melon, hints of honeysuckle, and a minerality to round out the finish. While complex and refreshing, this Chenin Blanc’s vibrant acidity and creamy minerality makes for a perfect pairing with Oysters, Halibut or Salmon.
