Les Enfants Terribles
Chenin Blanc 2018
Natural winemaking, fermented in a “Concrete Egg”
Vineyard: Clarksburg, CA (they work with very select small growers)
Winery & Tasting Room: Alameda, CA
Co-founders and married to each other & the wine: Mike and Anne Dashe
Yellow with light green shimmer. Let it breathe, it needs room. Trust me and you’ll start smelling pâte à choux, fresh & baked pears, melon, apricots, almonds, and a touch of slate. Next up sipping that melon again, lemon/lime, orange zest, honeysuckle, apricots, firm pears, a grapefruit greyhound splash, and a sprinkle of salt. Lovely and full of grace.
Pairs with Cheez-It’s: delicious and delightful
I think I may have a new reason to pack my bags and “Going Back to Cali”. Spirits Alley (Alameda Point) definitely looks…well…up my alley. Dashe Cellars resides there along with other distilleries, breweries, and wineries. What a fabulous use for an old Naval Air Station, and what a great way to spend a day wandering (and hopefully not weaving and wobbling). Also if you visit on the 1st Sunday of the month, you can do one of my other favorite pastimes that I know I will have to bribe my S.O. to do, shopping at an antique faire. Ok, maybe it will take a big bribe of a trunk load of IPAs 🍺 because Alameda Point Antiques Faire is the largest antiques show in Northern California. Think of the treasures you can find from the booths, bottles, and by the glass! Cheers!
