Off-dry in sweetness, this Chenin Blanc has freshness on the palate with hints of apricot and stone fruit. Its hint of sweetness is counterbalanced by a high level of acidity making this a wine that is round and fresh easy to drink now or a wine that can age well.
Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
Vouvray is an A.O.C. located in the central part of the Loire Valley with Tuffeau soil with its high calcium content and gentle slops are ideal for Chenin Blanc. Vouvray by law must be made of 100 percent Chenin Blanc and no where in the world produces Chenin Blanc as richly flavored and at the same time gracefully delicate as Vouvray. Vouvray can be almost any kind of wine - dry (sec: 0-0.4% sugar), medium dry sometimes called off dry (demi-sec: 0.4 -1.2% sugar), medium sweet (moelleux: 1.2 to 4.5% sugar) and very sweet (Doux more than 4.5% sugar). Picard uses both early harvest grapes (for acidity) and late harvest grapes (for sugar) to produce an off-dry wine that ages well, or is delightful at a young age.
