Chasselas Doré is an old grape variety born in the Jura and Alps mountain ranges of Switzerland. Fresh, tropical and savory, it is light on its feet while having a surprising amount of structure and body for a wine with just 10% alcohol. Serve chilled, it will pair nicely with creamy cheeses, fresh veggies and spicy foods.
This wine is made from two rows of organically grown, ungrafted vines in our Sisters Vineyard. The attentive vineyard practices we demand focus on rigorous training of the vines, minimal interference with the ecosystem, and on picking at the optimal time. Insecticides, herbicides, and systemic chemicals are never used in the vineyards. In the winery, we refrain from unnecessarily manipulating the wines during their fermentation and maturation, allowing them to reflect the vintage. It ages 6 month on lees. In spite of full natural malolactic fermentation. the wine is crisp.
