Chimney Rock Elevage Blanc 2015

White Blend | Stags Leap District, Napa Valley,  California
Elevage Blanc, honors the style of the great Bordeaux whites. Sauvignon Gris, a rarely planted relative of Sauvignon Blanc, provides beautiful aromatics and texture as blending grape. Our Elevage Blanc blend challenges the typical conception of white wines with its age-worthiness and its balanced richness. The 2015 vintage was one of the earliest and warmest on record and the third year of drought in the Napa Valley. Small berries and balanced yields produced grapes that were extraordinary in quality.
