Stolpman Vineyards Combe Chenin Blanc

Peter Stolpman's partner in Combe, Rajat Parr initially doubted whether a lot of so-called Chenin Blanc in the New World would truly be a genetic match to the Chenin of the Loire Valley. Rajat believed the key to finding a noble strain of true Chenin was to take cuttings from vines that produced yellowed fruit once fully ripe. and that if Chenin Blanc is picked still green, the subsequent wine will never possess a rich, nuanced profile. A friend of Rajat provided Stolpman with their cuttings from an extremely old Chenin vineyard here in California. Those cuttings were grafted onto mature 22 year old roots.
