100% Chenin Blanc. The fruit is purchased from vineyards in Valle San Vicente; south of Ensenada. Pneumatic press for a gentle extraction of aromas and color without oxidation. Fermented and aged at low temperatures in Apollo Flextanks. The porous polymers allow for a passage of oxygen equivalent to the contribution of a new barrel, bringing texture and character to the wine, while respecting the fruit aromas. Rich bouquet of peaches, fresh apricots and white flowers with a touch of acacia honey. Nice round palate with a well balanced acidity. A generous yet delicate wine. 250 cases produced.

About the Producer

Bodegas Henri Lurton is born from an adventure that links France to Mexico. Henri Lurton, owner of the Grand Cru Classé Château Brane-Cantenac in Margaux, with the support of his eldest sons, Vincent and Nicolas, placed a confident bid on Baja California - convinced of its winemaking potential, the warmth of its people and the generosity of the land.

After working for almost 10 years at Château Brane-Cantenac, winemaker Lourdes Martinez Ojeda returned to her hometown of Ensenada to bridge the divide between France and Mexico. Her first vintage was 2015; her wines seek to faithfully convey the terroir. Total production is 1,500 to 2,000 cases.

Farming practices: sustainable.
