About This Wine

More than 100 wine grape varieties are grown in California’s Lodi district.

As far as the winemakers at Cloudcrest Winery are concerned, that makes it an ideal appellation for crafting a dependably delicious White Blend. For the 2015 Cloudcrest White Blend, they selected two varieties: Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

These are two varieties that you sometimes see blended with other varieties, but rarely with one another. When you think about it, however, it makes perfect sense. The Chardonnay provides the rich, viscous impression that coats the mouth, while the Chenin Blanc adds bright acidity that carries the fruit flavors through a lingering finish.

Selecting the varieties to pair was step one. Determining the blend came next, and it involved focused trials during which no consideration was rendered too small. Ultimately, the vintners decided that a blend of 86% Chardonnay and 14% Chenin Blanc was ideal, and our tasting panel enthusiastically concurs.
