Cherry House White is a new cuvée from the famed Villa Creek Cellars in western Paso Robles. This Châteauneuf-du-Pape inspired white blend of Clairette and Grenache Blanc is from their MAHA estate and surrounding vineyards, all farmed naturally using organic principles.
Winemaking Notes: The Clairette grapes fermented and aged in French oak (10% new) with full malolactic fermentation. The Grenache Blanc grapes fermented and aged in neutral barriques with partial malolactic fermentation.
Tasting Notes: Yellow flowers dominate the nose while yellow fruits play a supporting role. The wine shows good salinity and hints of sunflower kernel and anise. The neutral oak aging provides good texture and body to this white wine without imparting flavor. Excellent acidity produces a snappy finish.
