Tasting notes

Delicious exotic aromas of ginger, green papaya and lemongrass in the glass. Bright natural acidity is balanced by a creamy palate with Asian pear notes. We reach for this wine to pair with foods that weave together spice, sour and sweet.

Production notes

It has been a pleasure for the Center of Effort team to restore the Chenin Blanc grape variety to the Edna Valley after nearly 35 years of absence. Our vines are planted on a small vineyard site, located about 2 miles away from the main estate, with perfect soil and aspect to support this classic grape.

Chenin Blanc has given the COE winemaking team the exercise of re-thinking our approach to white wine production. Chenin Blanc is quite aromatic, and we highlight this trait with fermentation in concrete vessels and attention to avoid excess oxidation or Malo-lactic fermentation which can mask the clean primary aromas from the fruit. Short aging on the lees imparts subtle texture, and the wine is bottled at about six months old.

Oro Bianco translates to white gold. Over the past five vintages it has become a favorite of our Insider Members.
