2023 Lady of the Sunshine Sauvignon Blanc / Chardonnay - Chevey

Regular price $40.00

In Stock: 8

The 2023 vintage of Chevey comes from a new Lady of the Sunshine vineyard site, sourced from the Presqu'ile Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley.  We are contracted to purchase 2 acres of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc that are farmed with practicing organic farming techniques for Lady of the Sunshine. This vineyard is 16 miles from the pacific coast and planted on sandy, well-draining soils. 

This playful wine is inspired by a traditional blend from the Cheverny region, in the Loire Valley, where it's common to blend the 2 varieties together.  The grapes were picked for natural acidity, foot tread and soaked on skins overnight before being whole bunch pressed, separately, the next day. The juice was fermented with native yeast & bacteria in neutral french oak barrels and aged on lees for 7 months before its first racking to blend before bottling, without filtration or fining, with minimal sufur used.
