Heaps Keen 2021
75% Chardonnay, 25% Chenin Blanc
Golden in color with juicy acidity, flavors of bitter orange, apricot and spice.
From the Winemaker:
"A blend of 75% Chardonnay + 25% Chenin Blanc made at End of Nowhere winery in Pioneer, California. 25% of the Chardonnay grew in my brother and sister-in-law’s backyard vineyard in Alamo and the rest of the grapes came from the organic Heringer Vineyard in Clarksburg.
The Alamo Chardonnay had 24 hours of skin contact before basket pressed with the Chenin Blanc. The Heringer Chardonnay was foot stomped and direct pressed to co-ferment with the Chenin and Alamo Chardonnay. Post fermentation, the wine was racked into a neutral oak barrel where it was until bottling in May 2022."
