"The 2013 Chardonnay Demuth is beautifully textured and exotic in the glass. Even though this fruit was picked at relatively low sugars, the inherent richness of this late harvest in the first week of October and the personality of these old Wente clones comes though in spades. Hints of almond, orange peel, mint and tangerine flesh out on a super-inviting finish supported by a real sense of phenolic intensity." ~ AG

" Deep straw with hints of green in color, this wine is intensely spicy upon opening with scents of quince and lemon peel. Medium in weight and with a rich mouthfeel, the wine has an excellent depth of flavor, finishing with a saline minerality. Bright acids and cleansing phenolics add freshness and structure.

Demuth Vineyard:
This stunning patch of land was planted 30 years ago by the Demuth family. Deeper topsoil leads to sturdy, healthy vines that produce complex flavor profiles. Two blocks of Pinot, totaling seven acres, are planted to Wadenswil and Pommard clones. The Chardonnay, totaling eight acres, is entirely comprised of old Wente clone. The age of the vines enable the vineyards to be dry farmed to improve sustainability. " ~ Winery notes
About Knez Winery

Peter and Heidi Knez purchased Cerise and Demuth vineyards in 2007. Knez farms organically and and is transitioning to Biodynamics. Grapes are picked on the earlier side to preserve the freshness and balance, and undergo natural fermentation for about three weeks with 30-100% whole cluster efore being drained by gravity directly to barrel. The wines are never wracked until bottling, sulfur additions are very low.
