This Chenin Blanc has expressive aromatics of ripe stone fruit, pineapple, citrus zest, honey, melon, with some pleasing minerality. This wine is rich and lively on the palate, with flavors matching the aromas. Even “non-wine drinkers” have been known to fall in love with the Husch Chenin Blanc. This is the ideal wine for scallops, Cornish game hen, ethnic cuisines, or a mid-afternoon picnic.
Husch Chenin Blanc
Founded in 1971, Husch is the oldest winery in the picturesque Anderson Valley. The vineyards are comprised of some of the earliest varietal plantings on the valley floor. In 1967 Tony and Gretchen Husch bought the 60-acre Nunn ranch between Philo and Navarro on Highway 128. The land was well known for growing apples and grains. They soon planted eight acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Gewurztraminer grapes on the cool slopes of the property. The plantings sweep down towards the pristine Navarro River. The first official crush was in the fall of 1971.
