100% sourced from Union School Vineyard, the same place we get the Sauvignon Blanc for Fool's Gold. I travelled to Matthew Rorick's Heritage Vineyard a few years back and collected cuttings from his Chenin block after finding a grower willing to graft for me. The site is perfect for SB and Chenin - slightly warmer, good drainage, crotchety old German at the helm... I ripen till the fruit turns yellow and speckled like a bird's egg and then direct press to large 500 liter casks for fermentation and aging. The elevage ranges from 12 to 18 months. The goal is to make a dry but extracted expression more akin to Savennière rather than say a Vouvray Sec. - Bow & Arrow
