A little more Anjou harvest news 2014

After the 40mm of rain that fell on Monday I thought that would be it for those hanging on in there for a final pass through the vineyard.

The sweet wines of the Loire valley

Naturally produced sweet wines require lots of hard work in the vineyard. Chenin Blanc is so suited to sweet wine with its naturally high acidity and lovely grapefruity bitterness that comes from sinking its roots deep into the schistous slaty soils of Anjou (its great on limestone too!).
