Ironstone Chenin Blanc 2019

Overview

This medium-bodied Chenin Blanc has aromas of Bosc pears, honeydew, light guava and a lovely flint mineral character. These intense aromas are followed by flavors of pear, white peach, lemon-zest and citrus that finishes crisp, plush and mouth-filling.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
In 2012, the Kautz family planted their first Chenin Blanc in Lodi. This wine comes primarily from the Sloughouse sub appellation, but a small amount comes just west of the river in the Delta. These well drained soils, each with their own unique qualities are ideal for growing world-class wine grapes. Ironstone practices sustainable viticultural such as crop reduction, leaf removal, organic materials and drip irrigation to improve the quality of the grapes and intensity of flavors. Cover crops, which attract beneficial insects, are also employed, as well as the placement of owl and wood duck boxes around the vineyards and ponds to help preserve the surrounding habitats. The wine is aged in stainless steel.


Serving Hints

This Chenin Blanc is great as an aperitif or when served with goat cheese stuffed chicken, seared tuna steaks, chicken curry, grilled shrimp, soft-shelled crab or a lovely watercress salad.
