Most of y'all are probably familiar with Laura Brennan's wines. I wanted to be sure to feature one of her wines, as I'm going to be doing some work on her vineyard on Underwood Mountain in the Columbia Gorge. Laura launched her project in 2011, focusing on overlooked vineyard sites in northern California. She's since become one of the leading voices of reintegrative agriculture in America.

I used the 2018 Chenin in the Blanca pairing back in 2019. The grapes were sourced from a small organic, dry-farmed vineyard in the Clarksburg AVA, close to Sacramento. Fermented on its lees, and aged in neutral barrel. Aromatically, the wine is flinty and stone fruited. Light bodied, with great texture from the lees aging. The palate is salty and refreshing, with notes of lemon zest, yellow apples and pear, with a pleasantly nutty finish.
