2021 Lady of the Sunshine "Chevey" White Blend, Edna Valley, Central Coast, California, USA

This playful blend is inspired by the traditional blends of the Cheverny region in the Loire Valley. Think orchard bloom, coconut meringue, & lemon zest.



A collaborative effort in practicing organic farming at Oliver's Vineyard in Edna Valley, owned by Talley Vineyards. This block was planted in 1991 and is located on the southwest side of the valley, four miles from the coast on a mix of sandy clay loam soils.

This playful blend is inspired by the traditional blends of the Cheverny region. The two varietals were harvested on the same day and foot tread and soaked on skins overnight before being whole bunch pressed, separately. The juice was fermented with native yeast in neutral french oak barrels and aged on lees for 7 months before its first racking to blend before bottling, without filtration.
