Limited Addition

Noble Dry Chenin Blanc 2021


The Eola Springs Vineyard from which this hails is perhaps as close to a "grand cru" vineyard as it comes in the Willamette Valley. Similar to how Chenin is produced in Loire Valley, they picked this later and somewhat riper (and partially botrytized - or 'nobly rotten'), then transferred it to neutral barrels where it fermented 100% naturally – outdoors! – over the winter and spring, allowing the ambient yeasts to work their magic. Its color belies its taste – while it may look and smell like an off-dry wine, it's an assertive, bracingly dry, intense Chenin Blanc fit for bold, rich food.

Vinification: From MFW Wine Imports : Chad Stock (formerly of Minimus, Omero, and Origin) and his wife Bree Stock, MW have come together to create their new project, Limited Addition, formed around their belief that there is still more to be considered in the Willamette Valley. After their departure from Minimus, the husband-and-wife team took the opportunity to recreate their ideal work relationship, free from investors, and with a desire to continue their work exploring alternative varieties and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in Oregon. Limited Addition are personal, handmade wines raised from Chad and Bree’s long collaborations with inspired farmers to develop a diverse and sustainable wine landscape in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. They are committed to expanding the conversation around sustainable practices in the wine industry; this is not limited just to farming philosophies but is also deeply rooted in a commitment to farmers and farm-workers who rely on the wine industry to sustain them. For these reasons (along with Chad’s constant need to explore the possibilities), Ltd+ works with a unique assortment of early, mid, and late-ripening grape varieties that allow labor to extend throughout the growing season, which helps provide economic security to farmers and farm-workers. Limited Addition wines are made as the vintage dictates and inspires. Additive-free and without recipe, there is just a curiosity to express the best of the grape and the place from a given moment in time.
