"Our Chenin has roots in the Santo Tomas vineyard in Ensenada where it’s grapes were grown. Pressed on Bucher Inertys pneumatic grape press under controlled atmosphere to guarantee our pressed juices are extracted without oxidation of aromas and color. Fermented and aged at low temperatures in Apollo Flextanks with porous polymers which allow for the passage of oxygen equivalent to the contribution of a new barrel for more volume and character to the Chenin’s profile, respecting the fruit aromas.
Warm golden robe. A rich bouquet with 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."
From their website:
"Our wines are 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, has placed a confident bid on Baja California. He is convinced of its winemaking potential, the warmth of it’s people and the generosity of the land.
The winemaker Lourdes Martinez Ojeda, after working for almost 10 years at Château Brane-Cantenac, is returning to her hometown of Ensenada to bridge the divide between France and Mexico.
At Bodegas Henri Lurton we seek to faithfully convey nature’s bounty and the Baja terroir, uniting it with our mestizo vision that is based around tradition and authenticity."
