2015 Finca La Carrodilla Chenin Blanc Baja California

SKU #1275981

During my visit to Valle de Guadalupe, Finca La Carrodilla was my favorite vineyard that we visited, hands down. Carrodilla's viticulturist, Jimena, stunned all of us with her vast level of knowledge on biodynamic and sustainable farming. All their vineyards are farmed biodynamic and sustainable, they have cows and sheep to graze and provide fertilizers and have added gardens to their vineyards in order to teach people in the community about sustainable gardening. Viticulturist Jimena explains that in order to have a successful wine region and vineyards, you must have a sustainable community as well. Finca La Carrodilla sells their organically farmed vegetables to local restaurants and gives 50% of the proceeds to the people who farm the crops. This Chenin Blanc is from young vines on the vineyard that have been farmed biodynamic their whole life, providing fresh, bright acidity and flavors of meyer lemon and almonds. With its clean, precise acidity and beautiful texture, this wine is incredibly refreshing and pairs well with a variety of cuisine. It especially pairs well with spicy Mexican food, a must have at your next taco truck crawl. (Olivia Ragni, K&L Wines, Mexico Buyer.)

Chenin Blanc

- Also called Pineau de la Loire and Pineau d'Anjou. Chenin Blanc is an expressive white French varietal that makes beautiful dry, sweet and sparkling wines. Traditionally grown in the Loire Valley, the wines made from this varietal are typically labeled geographically. Vouvray Chenins are traditionally medium-sweet; Savennières Chenins are typically bright and crisp; Coteaux du Layon Chenins like Bonezeaux and Quarts de Chaume are among the world's most sought-after sweet wines, and the sparkling Chenins of Saumur are perfumed and delicious. What all of these iterations of the grape have in common is their ability to age, a gift bestowed upon them because of the grape's naturally high-acidity.
