Viticulture

This is the 8th vintage that Jeanne d'Arc was been 100% Chenin Blanc. In 2017, we started working with an old Chenin vineyard on Merritt Island in Clarksburg. This vineyard is the third Chenin Vineyard that we have worked with and the early signs are that it is the best. The Chenin was picked Late August at 19 brix.

Vinification

Destemmed to an open-top fermentor. The wine was not chilled or inoculated. The fermentation began naturally after about 6 days on the skins. A little less than a month later, we pressed the dry juice off the skins to neutral French barrels and let the malolactic fermentation proceed naturally till complete in neutral barrels. Post fermentation, we did not add sulfur dioxide. The first and only addition was made just before bottling. The final wine is unfiltered and unfined. Total production in 2017 is 99 cases.
